Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Harlem STEM Up!

Join our family and become part of our amazing team

We need volunteers to:

Act as facilitators/mentors

Act as facilitators/mentors by doing science/engineering experiments at our Inaugural Harlem STEM Up Day Science Fair and Career Day (Saturday, November 4, 2023). We hope to bring some live examples of real-world science experience to program participants.

Serve as mentors

Serve as mentors for students who are preparing for the specialized high school admissions test (SHSAT) for entrance into NYC high schools.

Please reach out to us here if you are interested in volunteering. Thank you!


Shadow Program

Are you interested in inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals? An excellent way to help achieve this goal is to provide shadowing opportunities to underrepresented students. If you can help in this way, please contact us here. Thank you!


We are looking for corporations to work with us to develop initiatives to help promote STEM education.


Colleges and Universities

We are looking for researchers who are willing to make their labs accessible to Junior High and High School underrepresented students who are interested in science and engineering. We would like for all kids to have the opportunity to be exposed to the processes of scientific inquiry and discovery. If you truly believe that science is fascinating, consider opening your lab once a year to a child who’s eager to learn more about science and engineering. If you can help in this way, please contact us here.


Inspired By Excellence & Innovation

Our mission is to increase the presence of underrepresented Black and Latinx/Hispanic youth at NYC’s specialized high schools and in future STEM careers by providing support, exposure, mentoring, and scholarships for mostly Black and Latinx/Hispanic students in Harlem, NYC.
