Updates on our program and the different student events
Here are a few words from one of our P-Tech students about their experience on Mentorship Day:
The day of our mentorship at P-TECH was very fun, exciting, and nerve-racking. It was an amazing experience because we got to meet our partners as well as new people that we're soon going to see all the progress that we as students made in P-TECH. This however made me very nervous because I have never done anything like this or similar too, but as the day progressed it got more exciting not only for us but for our mentors as well. Seeing their enjoyment of what we do in our school did make me feel proud as we presented our boards and all of our projects. This made me anxious as well, because of all the work we have done from our first day at P-TECH to the mentorship day, was finally going to be shown to crowds of people. This showcased what we do at our school, the skills we’ve learned, developed, and who we are in general. It was an overall amazing experience seeing our partners all here to see us as we present our work, projects, and activities.

It was a great way to empower our young female students, and inspire them to pursue their dreams in a world full of possibilities.
