Baltimore STEM Scholars Program
 
 
 
LET'S GO Boys and Girls works to break the cycle of poverty through STEM education and workforce development. Through partnerships with schools and youth organizations LET’S GO establishes high-quality, content-rich 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, volunteer training and management, hands-on STEM professional development workshops and instructor coaching, curriculum selection and development, and ready-to use materials. High quality STEM learning experiences help youth develop critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving skills; enhance creativity; and engage 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, too many lack the resources and support necessary to persist in STEM learning. LET’S GO STEM Scholars, youth with demonstrated STEM interest and persistence, participate in a variety of STEM activities and competition teams, school and career exploration and family engagement events designed to further develop their STEM identity -- a youth’s internal belief that he or she is 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 LET’S 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.
