Done in a Day – Making an Immediate Impact

The League’s Done in a Day projects focus on short, intensive community activities that are typically completed in a single day or weekend. We partner with other nonprofits and community service agencies to identify projects that fit within our focus area of “developing the potential of all families by mobilizing trained volunteers.” Done in a Day events respond to short-term needs and benefit the communities in our service area.

Among the local nonprofit agencies with which we’ve partnered on Recent Done in a Day projects:

Project STEAM - Hands-on Activities that Raise Girls' Confidence

Project STEAM, a program under Project READ Redwood City, exposes girls and their families to thought provoking STEAM activities in a workshop setting. As girls practice building, mixing, and thinking about different materials and components in a fun, low-pressure environment, confidence about their STEAM related abilities goes up. League volunteers guide learners through the activities and help them develop a sense of fascination and excitement about STEAM concepts.

The Tech Challenge Team Mentors - Leading Girls in STEAM 

A signature program of The Tech Museum of Innovation, The Tech Challenge is an annual team design challenge for students in grades 4-12 that introduces and reinforces the science and engineering design process with a hands-on project geared to solving a real-world problem. League volunteers will mentor a team of middle school girls from the peninsula in the Challenge.
