NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE: YPN STEAM Ahead - April 14, 2018
National Urban League Young Professionals (NULYP) chapters nationwide celebrate service by joining together to promote comprehensive STEAM educational opportunities and mentoring each Spring. By planning activities that expose black and minority communities, particularly youth, to fields they are underrepresented in, chapters generate excitement and awareness. Chapters partnered with STEAM, STEM, arts and mentoring organizations.
The Urban League of Broward County Young Professionals Network will kick off their inaugural STEAM Ahead Program on National Day of Service, April 14th 2018. The program is designed to introduce middle school aged youth in underserved communities to STEAM industries/careers with curriculum on a quarterly basis. The STEAM Ahead Program and each quarterly workshop focuses on a specific pillar of STEAM infused with entrepreneurial elements. It’s important that these students are not only introduced to STEAM but also understand how to monetize their creations. YPN will collaborate with other non-profit organizations, businesses, and community advocates to ensure the success and sustainability of the program.
We are seeking community sponsorships in order to offer the program for FREE to the students in these underserved communities. The sponsorship cost is $10/student.
