Boys Resourcing Technology Program

NPI will be introducing a new student mentoring program grown from and supported by WIT (Workforce Industry Training) members for pre-teen boys. The BRT (Boys Resourcing Technology) Program, much like the Power GRID program for girls, will give the WIT members an opportunity to give back by interacting and mentoring young male students - to engage them in academic activities that will impassion these young students to stay focused on a strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) path. Our WIT members have demonstrated themselves to be highly impressive with their commitment to career opportunities in STEM. Our industry partners have sited that WIT members meet many of their criteria for prospective workforce needs.

Our BRT Mentor Program provides positive high school students from the WIT organization to motivate pre-teen boys to cultivate leadership skills, boost character development and encourage science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subject acceleration. The program is a year-long commitment between the WIT member mentor and a BRT mentee.
BRT Mentor Program Goals:

  • Increase boys' sense of self worth
  • Improve boys' perspective toward STEM education
  • Help boys develop and define their short-term and long-term goals
  • Encourage social awareness through community service projects
  • Build positive relationships and support networks with adults and peers
