- Cybermentor, Germany
CyberMentor is Germany’s largest online mentoring program for girls in STEM (MINT in German). Up to 800 pupils from 5th to 12th grade are accompanied by a personal mentor for one year. The mentor serves as a role model for STEM activities and provides guidance on the choice of subjects and studies. Mentoring is provided via a protected online platform with mail, chat and forum, and is supported by a wide range of information on STEM, studies and professional choice. Cybermentor has been very successful since 2005: After leaving the program, 71% of all former participants choose an STEM subject as a subject or a course of study.
Join us on 8 December 2016 at The Square Brussels for the fourth annual European Ada Awards Ceremony — taking place as part of Garages 2016 and the European Commission’s Vocational Skills Week 2016 — where we will announce the 2016-2017 European Digital Impact Organisation of the Year™!
