How are military commands providing support in schools?
Service members are volunteering in local schools by mentoring, reading to classes, assisting with various school events like family fun nights. If your command would like to volunteer in school, contact the School Liaison Officer. The ways to volunteer are endless.
Navy Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
Where can I find student opportunities?
STEM development begins with Naval STEM outreach programs at the Pre-K through 12th-grade levels, continues through undergraduate and graduate school, supports student advancement into post-doctoral work, and continues through all stages of their STEM professions.
The list of opportunities for high school, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students can be found below and by downloading the Naval STEM Opportunities for Students handout.
