Group Leader Information


Encourage Girls to Enter STEM Careers!

What is TGIS?

TGIS is an international one day conference that is designed to increase girls’ interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and to provide them with information on math and science related careers. 

What major should I have to volunteer?

Undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline are welcome to volunteer as a TGIS Group Leader. TGIS is great experience for “helping” majors like education, social work, and human science as well as those students interested in STEM careers. 

What role do Group Leaders play?

Group Leaders supervise and escort the girls to the assigned workshops at TGIS. Group Leaders encourage girls to participate in the hands-on STEM workshops and share with the girls what it is like being an MTSU college student. Group Leaders assist the workshop leaders if needed, eat lunch with the girls and help with dismissal on TGIS day.

How can I become a Group Leader?

You can submit an application to volunteer as a group leader with or without college credit. To earn EXL credit for your volunteerism, you can register for the TGIS Service Learning Practicum offered during the Fall 2021 semester! Information coming soon.

2021 date has not yet been determined , 8:00 am-3:30 pm (group leaders should arrive no later than 7:30 AM)
