To be considered for an official Snap the Gap program site, you must meet the following requirements:

Each site requires a volunteer site coordinator (you!). To become a site, you must commit as a site coordinator to facilitate the program and be the ultimate STEM cheerleader.
Your site must be associated with an affiliated institution. Affiliations include school-based programs, after-school programs, non-profit organizations, and girl-serving organizations (Girl Scouts, 4H, YMCA, PTA, etc.)
**If you are not currently associated with an affiliated institution, Snap the Gap recommends connecting with a teacher/principle at a school or presenting this opportunity to an after-school program. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions before applying.
Must have dedicated space to host the program
