The eSteamed Youth Program integrates program elements from all five facets, with the Services to Youth facet serving as the lead. The eSTEAMED Youth Program focuses on 5 key areas: Development of the Whole Child, Closing the Achievement Gap, Career Awareness, Financial Literacy, and Mentoring. The mission of the eSTEAMED Youth Program is to improve the high school experience by encouraging minority students to actively engage in the education process and increase their preparedness for transition to collegiate life. We facilitate interactive and engaging activities for 10th through 12th grade students that are geared towards Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
We also partner with The National Society of Black Engineers – Austin Professionals (NSBE-AP) on the NSBE-AP FreshStart program, a day of interactive workshops that introduce 6th – 12th grade students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The program gives students a better understanding of careers in STEM fields.
