Become a Geomentor!

We want to promote a way to engage GIS professionals and practitioners with teachers in addition to budding professionals in a range of roles depending on your expertise and interests and the needs of potential mentees. Engagements between Geomentors and mentees may range from advocating GIS technology adoption in a local school, assistance with tailoring GIS activities for a specific school subject or grade level, or just speaking with a budding GIS professional to discuss education or career challenges and questions. The variety of outreach opportunities is as diverse as the application potential of GIS itself.

By serving as a Geomentor, you will enrich the lives of students, teachers, young professionals throughout Connecticut, and yourself. Further, you will be playing a pivotal role in improving GIS and geography education, and more broadly, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
