Maydm provides girls and youth of color in grades 6-12 with skill-based training for the technology sector through out-of-school programs and workshops. Maydm’s holistic approach prepares students from traditionally underrepresented populations to engage in and revolutionize the tech industry.
Maydm offers out-of-school programs and workshops where students build the skill set to pursue exciting career opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), creating a diverse workforce pipeline in Dane County. Students are immersed in a venue where they learn key programming and digital literacy skills, interact with professional technologists through mentorships, and develop soft skills, applying this knowledge to practical projects such as constructing websites or programming hardware. Distinctly, our programs and workshops integrate technical skills, innovation, problem-solving, design thinking, and teamwork to promote our students’ personal, academic and professional growth.
We envision a world where all students know that a career in STEM is possible for them; a world where all students are equipped with the skills to elevate their quality of life; a world where all students can pursue their dreams as entrepreneurs, developers, engineers, or professors.
Inclusivity. Every day, we check power, privilege, and attitudes at the door to producing an environment that uplifts and supports our mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual capacity to bring about change for the communities that we serve.
Quality. We implement the highest standards and techniques so that we always deliver transformational instruction and guidance to Maydm’s students.
Boldness. We have an energetic and exciting work environment that requires a blend of technical acumen and creative vision, so we welcome collaboration that is both forthright and pioneering.
Reflection. We thoughtfully and intentionally consider input from our colleagues, students, stakeholders, and community.
