STEM Leadership Program


Welcome to our new volunteer program at Geering Up!

Leaders-in-training (L.I.T.s) are high school volunteers who support our summer camps for kids. They will work closely with our instructor team to deliver and share STEM to youth in a hands-on and dynamic learning environment. L.I.T.s are students going into grade 10 and above in September 2021. We encourage students who will be entering Grade 10 or above in the fall of 2021 to apply. However, preference will be given to students entering Grade 11 or Grade 12 in the fall of 2021. University students will not be considered for this position.

Leaders-in-training support our Instructors in leading three one-week-long daily STEM camps with up to 20 youth over the summer. Camps are held from June 29 – September 4 through online platforms. L.I.T.s are also expected to be in attendance for four days of training prior to the commencement of the summer season, and to be in attendance at a weekly Friday afternoon meeting in July and August. A full description of the position can be found here.






Upon successful completion of the Leader-in-Training Program, the LITs are invited, and encouraged, to remain with the program during the fall and spring terms as “STEM Ambassadors” throughout their communities. They will become part of the STEM Ambassador Council, which will act as a bridge between Geering Up, UBC APSC, and high schools in BC to share ideas and improve outreach initiatives.
