STEM Impact Initiative
YWCA’s STEM Impact Initiative is a “train the trainer” initiative that makes it possible to reach many more children with our acclaimed STEM curricula. We supply partner after-school providers with the instruction, materials, and resources that they need to deliver quality STEM programming. The curricula are interactive, and educational activities are uniquely structured to awaken children’s interest in STEM.
The STEM Impact Initiative supports elementary school students who come from high poverty, ethnic and racial minority, disabled, and female populations, all of which are significantly under-represented in the STEM educational and career fields.
