Make an Impact on Your Community 

The K-12 STEM Center follows all University Guidelines for protecting students, families, teachers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. All volunteers and USC K-12 STEM Center employees are required to comply with USC policies for the protection of minors because we work with those who are under 18 years old. Requirements may include online training, fingerprinting, TB testing, and release forms, all covered by the Center.

Whether you are looking for a meaningful way to spend a Saturday or a longer-term commitment, the USC Viterbi K-12 STEM Center offers a range of volunteer opportunities with local elementary, middle, and high school students.

Why volunteer?

              • Make a difference in your community by serving as a mentor and modeling the college pathway to K-12 students
              • Teach STEM literacy and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers
              • Practice communication to non-technical audiences on science and engineering topics
              • Learn new skills through workshops led by USC staff and faculty
              • Join a community of other passionate USC Viterbi undergraduate and graduate students
              • Thrive and flourish with volunteering as a wellness practice.

Volunteer for one of our Center's programs like SHINE, or at one of our Center events like MESA Day or Robotics Open House.

Our Center has a long history of partnering with recognized Viterbi Student Groups to support their missions of inspiring and empowering future generations of engineers by providing STEM outreach in the community. Many Viterbi Student Groups partner with us to support their community outreach efforts with K-12 students, benefiting from our Center's expertise and relationships with local schools. Viterbi Student Groups interested in collaborating should contact Noe Mora
