“Fill the Gap: Building a STEM+Arts Pipeline”
Each year, jobs in STEM fields are unfilled. College enrollment in the U.S. is down, and we are suffering a “talent gap”. We don’t have enough skilled workers in STEM fields to meet the demand, and the problem is getting worse. iUrban Teen is turning those numbers around. Your donations will help us cultivate the next crop of STEM workers, leaders and innovators. We’ve developed a proven approach to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, math and the arts (STEM+Art) careers that inspires them to answer America’s call for 3 million new STEM professionals by 2020.
iUrban Teen is working to bridge that divide by getting our community youth interested in STEM+Arts to “Fill the Gap”.
Our programs expose youth, and their families, to STEM+Arts concepts and real-world skills in a safe, creative, fun, rewarding environment. And it’s working, but we need your support. Click here to watch our video to see the difference we’re making in the communities we serve.
Donate today, and help us continue to build career opportunities and a world of possibilities for our youth.
