Leadership: Many people with technical backgrounds move into areas of management and top leadership. Activities are provided to promote leadership and professional growth.

Why SHPE Outreach?
We are looking for students with a passion for learning, a desire to succeed, and to advance their education and careers in the fields of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM). You are the next generation of innovators, and you have the power to make an impact on the world! The wonder of the SHPE Outreach program is that you will be given the opportunity to see what STEM is outside of your normal classroom setting, all the while making friends with college students who started out in the same shoes that you are in today!
Seeing the staff members of SHPE Outreach, and the other college students that we shared dorms with, juggling life, clubs and school, helped me to get a feel of how life would be for me in college."
