Girls who participate in SHINE develop relationships that provide a network of support both in and out of our program:
- Student - Student: students build friendships with other girls, forming ties that foster confidence, collaboration, and empowerment in an evironment free of social pressure
- Mentor - Student: through close interaction with their mentors, girls realize that there is no social stigma associated with mathematics and STEM fields
- Mentor - Mentor: SHINE provides girls with the opportunity to become engaged with STEM and assume leadership, growing the mentors' own self-confidence and passion for STEM
- Professional Women in STEM - Mentors & Students: younger girls see role models in STEM fields and begin to consider a future in higher-paying and stable STEM jobs with the ability to contribute to an increasingly technological society
