In Fall 2015, Women United embarked on a new initiative called “Young Minds in Motion,” a fun, exciting, hands-on project for youth ages eight to twelve.

Young Minds in Motion is a partnership with local community libraries and the 4-H Cooperative Extension Program at the University of Rhode Island, which provided STEM-based kits for Women United volunteers to conduct sessions. Each site has an activity leader, and volunteers assist during the session.

In 2017, Young Minds in Motion is expanding to even more communities. That’s where you come in! We’re looking for volunteers who are interested in helping during these upcoming sessions. Consider being a site coordinator or volunteer assistant and experience the fun of watching a child discover STEM learning!

It’s a great opportunity to connect with Women United members, Rhode Island youth, and local communities. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Anita Oliver, Manager of Women United, at (401) 444-0631.
