Volunteer with Youth STEM Matters - Youth Led Scientific Journal
Youth STEM Matters is a youth led scientific journal, created by Youth STEM 2030 to provide a platform for young people to share their research findings, ideas and innovations with the world!
We publish articles which have a real world impact, and can help solve some of the biggest global challenges, from the climate emergency, to poverty, to inequalities.
If you want to gain new skills, meet new people and use your free time to do something that will make the world a better place, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!
We’ve got a variety of roles designed for 14-22 year olds and we’ll provide all of the training and support you need. All our team work remotely, so you can be based anywhere and can volunteer from home!
By joining the Youth STEM Matters team of volunteers, you will:
- Develop new skills, particularly in working and writing scientifically
- Meet new people
- Potentially get the chance to represent Youth STEM Matters at events
- Get the opportunity to take on leadership roles
- Be able to help other young people
