Latina Labs is geared towards Latina middle school girls with the purpose to introduce them to the STEAM career fields in the DMV area. The goal is to increase the students’ interest in advanced learning and provide equitable opportunities to individuals who otherwise may not have been able to access this type of program. The sessions are led by talented professionals with a background in science, biology, engineering, and technical communication who can relate to the struggle of first generation youth.
The Latinas Leading Tomorrow (LLT) volunteers who help steer Latina Labs seek help in two primary ways: 1) You can volunteer to be a part of the LLT Latina Labs team; or 2) You can volunteer to make your professional expertise in any STEM/STEAM field available to Latina Lab students.
