The main goal of this program, sponsored by the Tensor Foundation, working through the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), is to create a sense of community among young women enrolled in pre-calculus and calculus courses so that they can encourage and support one another. The program also gives Citrus students a unique opportunity to act as mentors for elementary and middle school girls while interacting with professional women mathematicians and graduate and advanced undergraduate students majoring in mathematics at local colleges and universities. The program is open to all Citrus students enrolled in pre-calculus and calculus courses with a strong emphasis on women participation.
Students participating in the Support and Inspire program are eligible for book scholarships at the end of the program. They are encouraged to participate in the annual Association for Women in Mathematics Essay Contest.
Support and Inspire students participate in a variety of activities, such as field trips, social get-togethers, "Adventures in Mathematics" outreach to elementary and middle school projects, awards and recognition events, attending career seminars, and "Let's Do Math!" sessions.
