What do POWER SET members do?

POWER SET members get more than just academic support and career guidance.  They also get information about college scholarship opportunities, and learn from noted speakers from industry and academia. Women professionals from NPI partner industries provide mentoring to POWER SET members, who in turn, mentor younger students in their school or community.  NPI and school sponsors arrange visits to college and university campuses and NPI partner industries.  Members assist with local community service and community development events, which gives them practical experience in working with others.
