Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 Summer Transportation Institute
The Summer Transportation Institute is a free two-week residential camp for high school girls hosted at Portland State University. This camp is designed to introduce girls to pathways toward careers in transportation, as well as possible routes to higher education in general. They will meet professionals in the field, student researchers, professors from Portland State, and representatives from organizations that serve state and local transportation systems. Girls will come from around the state to participate, and in addition to classroom work and field trips, there will be plenty of scheduled fun as well!
We know that women are still underrepresented in professional fields related to technology and engineering. This camp aims to address this problem by providing experiential learning about transportation, connecting high school girls with women in transportation-related fields, and encouraging young women from diverse backgrounds toward transportation-related course work in their secondary and post-secondary education.
The camp covers:
· Learning materials
· Room & board at PSU residence halls
· Transit passes for field trips
· Travel to and from Portland
Half of each day is spent in the classroom hearing from PSU faculty and guest lecturers from ODOT, the FHWA, the Portland Bureau of Transportation, TriMet, the Port of Portland, and various other public and private transportation agencies. The majority of the instructors are women. The other half of the day consists of field trips exploring Portland’s transportation infrastructure and public spaces.
Applications for the 2017 summer program are being accepted now. Any girl who is interested in STEM, entering the 9–12 grade with a minimum GPA of 2.0, and has completed math up to the pre-algebra level is eligible. Contact Lisa Patterson if you have questions.

Our History: Momentum Alliance emerged out of the "Papers" Youth Crew, youth who helped produce and distribute the documentary film, "Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth." The film, produced by Graham Street Productions, has screened in all 50 states and was broadcasted on public television nationwide. Starting with a seed grant from Kaiser Permanente Community Fund at the Northwest Health Foundation, funders saw the success of these emerging leaders and the need for continued support and so provided funding to develop our youth-led non-profit.
Our Mission: Momentum Alliance is non-profit led by young people, with experienced coaches, whose mission is to inspire young people to realize their power individually and collectively and to mentor future social justice leaders. Through Student Alliance Project (our "pre-apprenticeship" leadership program and Leveraging Momentum (our "journey level" leadership program), we prepare diverse young people from underrepresented communities in Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington, and Clark Counties to become effective community advocates, leaders and decision-makers.
