Once you are comfortable with your internship, you are free to join however many roles you would like. Please remember that each role requires at least 2 hours per week. If you are unable to attend meeting times and engage with your team as well as tasks, you will be removed from the role.
  • What have past interns said about STEM•E?
    "Thank you for letting me join... I've learned management and leadership skills from you during my short time in the program. Last year, combining my learnings from leaders like you and my experiences, I managed a team of more than 20 people in my service learning "Women Shape the World" and received a Student Service Leader award from the Association of International Schools of Africa. I am currently enrolled in Environmental Studies at the University of Ottawa. I hope to be able to use my knowledge and skills once again to serve the community. Thank you again for your inspiration." "I...wanted to let you know you've been a great mentor and a major reason for my success in my current office internships. My learnings working at STEME have aided me in almost every internship or course I've taken since, be it Hootsuite, Asana, Mailchimp, Volunteer tracking, etc., and I have you to thank for all the unparalleled experience you brought me." "All I have is gratitude and appreciation for the effort and time you put to help me grow :). I will be taking the time to write down the lessons you provided and reflect on them whenever I face a problem in the future with myself, a team, or a business. It means a lot considering how much I undervalued the supportive people around me when I had big communities around me and how those communities/environments changed overtime. Here are some updates I wanted to give you regarding my growth: I grew my business and made a bunch of mistakes, while learning about new systems and routines to allow it to evolve."
  • Is experience necessary to join?
    Experience is not necessary to join, however after attending several meetings and gaining experience as to how your role/roles work, you can start to collaborate and work by yourself. Additionally, feel free to ask the team lead any questions in case!
  • How can I log my hours that I spend interning?
    You can log your volunteer hours in the Time Sheet located in our Discord server once you are added to your roles (channels designated to your roles - when you officially begin your internship). Please make sure to log your hours in the Time Sheet if you would like to request a letter of verification for volunteer hours and/or apply for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. We do not track your hours and logging your hours is not a requirement. This Time Sheet is simply for you and your needs!
  • Is this a paid internship?
    No, but you are able to receive volunteer hours for the time you spend on the internship.
  • What does it mean to be an intern?
    Interns at STEM•E are able to gain professional experience and critical skills to further their STEAM endeavors through accessible STEAM opportunities. As an intern, you are able to work in a team/role of your interest and equip yourself with project management and soft skills to boost your resume as well as career success. We aim to cultivate the leaders of tomorrow! Please treat your internship as a job. The more effort that you commit to your internship, the more fruitful it will be!

    2 to 5 hours per week are required for each role.
  • What if I can’t attend the meetings due to a recurring conflict or time zone difference (international interns)?
