Creating opportunities in STEM for elementary-aged girls in Cumberland County

About this program

Club Cosmic Overview:

Coming Fall 2019!YWCA Carlisle’s Club Cosmic is an after school program for elementary-aged girls designed to create opportunities and interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) across Cumberland County. Club Cosmic meets every week from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at participating elementary schools. Club Cosmic provides a healthy after school snack for each participant. Girls will participate in fun, interactive activities relating to STEM subjects, and will be given the opportunity to end the year with a field trip. Through STEM programming, Club Cosmic will build resiliency, foster creativity, develop problem-solving skills, and encourage experimentation to promote personal and academic success.


​YWCA Carlisle is seeking volunteers for the 2019-2020 school year. We offer two types of volunteer positions: Club Cosmic Location Directors and STEM Assistants. Volunteers must obtain 2019 clearances for PA Child Abuse, PA Criminal History, and FBI/Federal Background and Fingerprinting prior to starting with our program. We ask that volunteers commit to twice a week for the duration of the school year.
