4-H Tech Wizards

4-H Tech Wizards is seeking adult volunteers to mentor youths from 8 to 18 while helping them to explore interests in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) on a weekly basis. Do you have a hobby or interest you would like to share with an interested group? It is surprisingly easy to fit nearly any interest into a framework of STEAM programming. Do you just want to spend time helping younger people find their own interests? We have loads of programming available for mentors who prefer a more structured approach, no prior knowledge necessary. Mentors will be matched with youths based on a combination of shared interests and shared availability. Our goal is to get this program up and running in Marquette County as quickly as possible with a sizable group of volunteers ready to work with groups of up to 4 young people.

As a mentor, you will be provided:

  • Training as a 4-H volunteer
  • Support from a full-time AmeriCorps volunteer dedicated to this program
  • Access to 4-H programming resources
  • A volunteer opportunity designed to make a measurable difference in the lives of its participants

For more information, please email Desi Mims, 4-H STEAM Corps, Tech Wizards Coordinator for MSU Extension, 184 US Hwy 41 E, Negaunee, at or call 906-475-5731.
