    • The Mount Vernon Technology & Science Youth Center for Advancement [Executive Advisory Board Member] , March 10 , 2014
      The Mount Vernon Technology & Science Youth Center for Advancement will be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation for advancing the learning of technology and science for public school children of Mount Vernon. The center will be as large as financially and logistically possible, a newly built property located in the heart of the South Side’s shopping district. Two Fourth Avenue street blocks, between Second and Third streets, have been selected as potential sites. This segment of the city’s shopping district has been most devastated by economic challenges, resulting in the majority of stores and business being closed. The center will be a multi-level, multi-purpose facility that houses dedicated space equipped with displays and various exhibits of highly sophisticated, advanced science and technology to support early exposure and learning. Ideally, the center will provide an interactive learning environment that allows students and visitors to participate in the learning process and enhance their understanding and appreciation of the impact that science and technology have on their lives, society and the future.

    • YWCA in White Plains & Central Westchester [Board Member] , January 9 , 2012
      The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. For over eighty years, the our YWCA has been making a difference in the lives of women, children and families in White Plains and Westchester by: - Being the largest provider of supportive housing for low-income women in New York State and the only provider in Westchester County - Cultivating girls to be tomorrow’s leaders - Preparing children for a bright future through one of the largest early education and youth services programs in the County; and - Putting better health and wellness within reach of all, including the developmentally disabled
    • The Youth Mission of Life [Director of Youth Outreach] , January 1 , 1997
      The Youth Mission of Life is a Christian church with a Youth Outreach Program comprised of young adults. It is our mission to celebrate God's love in the world and to share it through the gift of his son, Jesus Christ. We therefore commit ourselves to helping those in need, encouraging those who are sick, and motivating those who are in despair to hope for a brighter tomorrow. It is our duty to utilize our God given talents and to minister beyond ourselves and let the world know that with God all things are possible.
    • Westchester County Youth Board [Board Member] , September 10 , 2016
      The Youth Bureau serves directly under the County Executive, Rob Astorino, and distributes New York State and local taxes to support several local youth programs and not for profit organizations. The latest research tells us that the best youth-directed programs are those that provide a physically and emotionally safe environment along with a caring, charismatic adult who can make a difference in a young person's life. Our program monitors ensure that all of the funded programs are selected, monitored and evaluated based on their goal of helping youth build the skills, mindset and leadership needed to be successful in life.

    • Mosley, P. & Chen, L. (2016, March 25). Camp CyberBot: GenCyber Camp in Cybersecurity for High School Students. NSA and NSF , Federal , $61,926.97 . Funded,Camp CyberBot, the 2016 GenCyber summer camp in Cybersecurity at Pace University (Pace) is a five-day non-residential workshop held from 9am – 4pm with 1 instructional hour and 5 hands-on/group activity hours. The camp will recruit 30 high school students from high schools in the New York Metropolitan area. This camp utilizes SeaPerch (underwater robot) as a platform for teaching cybersecurity concepts and fundamentals. With pedagogy of hands-on and active learning labs, teachers will help reinforce cybersecurity first principles learning competencies, knowledge integration, collaborative experiences for learning, and the influence of cybersecurity technology to expand the minds of youth in critical grades of adolescent transition. At the end of the camp, students will be able to demonstrate proficiency and apply critical thinking to the following areas: cyber-literacy, cyber-science, cyber-warfare, and cyber-society.
    • Mosley, P. & Sao, D. (2015, February 1). GE Grant - STEM Women Achieve Greatness (SWAG). GE , Private , $25,000.00 . Funded,STEM Women Achieve Greatness (SWAG) is a computing and technology program designed to provide high school girls with a pre-college experience in computing and technology. Taking place over a series of weekly workshops, SWAG will give you the chance to learn about not just the fundamental concepts of computing, but an array of exciting branches within the field. Participants will: •Learn about design thinking •Apply cybersecurity principles •Build and test water robots •Create interactive devices using Arduino

    • Mosley, P. & Imperial, M. (2013, September 1). Girls Code Project White Plains Afterschool Program. Verizon Foundation Grant , Private , $20,000.00 . Funded,Researchers have highlighted the educational value of robotics design projects, they have noted a sharp gender imbalance in the overall participation rates, at both the K-12 and university levels (Melchior, 2004). This imbalance is part of a broader trend in computer science and engineering. Although a previously existing gender gap in the overall use of computers has narrowed or disappeared, there are still significant differences in how people use computers. While girls and women use computers actively for communications and Web searching, they are far less likely to take computer-science courses and get involved with programming computers (Margolis & Fisher, 2003). This lack of participation is a cause for concern: an influential report from the National Research Council (1999) emphasizes the critical importance of “fluency” with digital technologies (where “fluency” is defined as “the ability to reformulate knowledge, to express oneself creatively and appropriately, and to produce and generate information (rather than simply to comprehend it) – and it argues that the skills associated with programming play a “central role” in becoming fluent. The purpose of this project is to determine the most effective pedagogical strategy to present, engage, and instruct girls in learning STEM thereby closing the gender gap. Utilizing the SeaPerch curriculum provided by the US Navy, a study will be conducted to evaluate how girls learn and what variables caused them to become engaged in STEM. In addition, the YWCA can rebrand itself as offering something innovative for boys but particularly girls.
