Subject: [Nfbnet-members-list] Deadline Approaching for NFB Youth Slam
Volunteers: We Need Your Energy, Love, Hope, and Determination!


The deadline to apply as an adult volunteer for the 2017 National Federation
of the Blind Youth Slam is fast approaching! The NFB Youth Slam program is a
weeklong learning opportunity for high school students in a wide-variety of
science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. In order to
make this program a success we need your help! Please help us engage,
inspire, and encourage the next generation of blind scientists, engineers,
programmers, and mathematicians to consider STEM careers. While some falsely
believe these careers are not for blind students, the NFB is here to
transform dreams into reality. 
Volunteers are needed to help our students learn new skills, build
confidence, and increase their science literacy. They can serve in a variety
of capacities including: helping to prepare materials, teaching a class,
providing support to students both in and outside of class, helping execute
program logistics (i.e., set up and tear down, material distribution),
providing navigational support for students (i.e., talking signs), etc.
Volunteers will be needed Friday, July 21 - Saturday, July 29, 2017.
The deadline to apply is Friday, February 17. Visit
https://nfb.org/youth-slam-volunteer-application to apply now! For more
information about NFB Youth Slam volunteer opportunities, please visit

additional questions, contact us at (410) 659-9314, extension 2418, or email
STEM at nfb.org. 
Join us as we continue to raise expectations and make history at what
promises to be the best NFB Youth Slam yet!
