About

Empoweringthrough Exposure

Women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce and make up a minority percentage of STEAM workers in the US (<25%). Women of color represent a smaller share of the science and engineering workforce (11%) than their proportion in the general population; often marginalized in technology and engineering professions. 

Be-Ruth advocates for a greater female presence in STEAM fields where they are underrepresented and possibly marginalized through the comprehensive Evolution of Ruth program model.

Girls in the primary stages of development participate in activities and events that inform, engage, and challenge.

Exposing youth as early as possible to STEAM career options helps them understand how to choose a career, increasing the probability that their selection will be the most suitable and fulfilling while increasing their economic power exponentially. We give young girls tools and resources for displaying their untapped talents and potential to change the world through the lens of science, technology, engineering, art, or math career.

Engagingthrough Mentorship

46% of youth are less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to start drinking as a result of mentoring. (Public/Private Ventures study of Big Brothers Big Sisters)

Be-Ruth organizes and conducts mentoring and wellness symposiums - the age range of 9-17 is a delicate time in female development, oftentimes awkward and difficult to discuss. Women and men develop differently. The Evolution of Ruth program model acknowledges those differences and guarantees that a girl has someone that cares about her and provides opportunities and platforms for open discussions that are specific to females. Through our group mentoring program, we foster a young girl’s personal growth, development, and social and economic opportunity.

Educatingin STEAM

Asian students took advanced mathematics courses at a significantly higher rate than any other racial or ethnic group, with 50% taking calculus or higher, compared with 22% for white students, 15% for Hispanic students, and 9% for black students. (ncgproject.org, 2018)

Be-Ruth will instruct t(w)een girls in STEAM training and development by planning out-of-school time academic programs and activities that foster learning in STEAM; we advocate for knowledge in one targeted career field.

STEAM development teaches youth to dissect and solve any problem through process, promote long-term growth and maturity, and create career options and focus.

The goal is to enhance their public education and give girl’s additional training in the area of STEAM.
