Cybermentor (founded in 2001 – happy 20 years!)  is an online mentorship and science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) outreach program for youth who face barriers to accessing STEAM education. The mentors—women, non-binary, and/or Indigenous professionals in diverse careers in STEAM—enjoy the experience of being a role model and motivating the next generation of STEAM professionals.

Co-coordinator Hannah Brunsdon has been with Cybermentor since 2019. She has a BA in Women’s and Gender Studies with a minor in Drama from UAlberta. Hannah is passionate about feminism, social justice education, mental health, arts-based community development, and creating safer communities. When she’s not working, you can find Hannah biking, doing arts and crafts projects with her family, or watching stand-up specials on all the streaming platforms!

Holliston (Holly) Logan is Cybermentor’s Indigenous Expansion Coordinator. Holly graduated from the University of Calgary with a BSc in Psychology. Holly joined the team in 2020 to focus on expanding the Cybermentor program to create a new mentorship and community engagement stream centred on Indigenous knowledge and people in STEAM. As a member of the Metis Nation of Alberta, Holly is passionate about working within her community and supporting Indigenous youth in pursuing their passions in a way that is meaningful and respectful to their own communities and cultures. When she is not working you can find Holly hanging out with her dog Beatrice, crocheting, listening to true crime podcasts, and hanging out in nature.
