LETS GO- Student Support Infrastructure Building
 
 
 
LETS GO’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty through STEM education and workforce development. Partnerships with schools and youth organizations give LETS GO an avenue to establish high-quality, contentrich, STEM programs for youth in under-resourced communities. We provide effective capacity building support to our partners through: customized strategic planning, program coordination and evaluation, hands-on STEM professional development and coaching, curriculum selection and development, and equip them with materials. High quality STEM learning experiences help youth develop key proficiencies: critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving skills; enhanced creativity; and engagement in an investigative process. These skills are key for future job security, as STEM-related jobs are some of the fastest growing jobs in the country and 80% of all jobs will require STEM literacy and skills. While all youth are capable of learning and great success, many students lack the resources and support necessary to persist in STEM. LETS GO STEM Scholars, youth with demonstrate STEM interest and persistence, participate in a variety of opportunities: STEM activities, competition teams, school and career exploration, and family engagement events; all designed to further develop their STEM identity -- a youth’s internal belief that they are capable of being successful in STEM or STEM-related fields in school and beyond. By developing collaborations and partnerships with local universities, STEM industry professionals. and other STEM providers; we connect youth with mentors, internships, and STEM experiences to help them succeed in education and the workforce. The LETS GO VISTA will develop resources, establish partnerships, and create systems that help youth gain STEM and 21st century skills necessary for success in the careers of tomorrow

Member Duties : The VISTA will be an integral component to LETS GO. This is a full-time position focused on capacity building for a particular group of STEM students, those transitioning in their education level. With pivots and changes due toCOVID-19, it is clear that we need to build capacity in different ways. The goals of this project include the creation of a framework for distance learning to address the needs of students during transition points (middlehigh; high-post secondary) and during times that require students to learn remotely. The project will simultaneously develop a comprehensive program of activities and events that keep students engaged and excited about STEM as they move through their stages of academic development. The VISTA will help with this endeavor and document processes and best practices to help successfully offer older students’ meaningful prospects to stay in the STEM pipeline
