WHAT IS S.T.E.A.M.?
S.T.E.A.M. is an extended learning enrichment program offered to students free of charge to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Jubilee REACH has partnered with S.T.E.M. Paths Innovation Network (S.P.I.N.) and the Bellevue School District to develop a program to help students build problem-solving and life skills, giving them an avenue to educational and career success. The program is unique, engaging, and also culturally relevant for today's youth. Find out more and see how you can help today.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Volunteer mentors, who are also industry professionals in S.T.E.A.M. subject areas, meet with students twice weekly to engage and teach them principles and fundamentals in these vital disciplines. From basic software installation to building computers, students learn how to problem solve using technology and team based interaction.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You can make a direct impact in the lives of young people. Help Jubilee REACH and S.P.I.N. provide access to technologies and fields of study often shut off to at-risk and impoverished youth. Your gift helps provide equipment for kids most in need. Give online, by phone or through stock.
