iUrban Teen – Portland

Portland Chapter

iUrban Teen launched in the Portland/Vancouver area in October 2011 on the Washington State University-Vancouver campus. The first STEM Summit attracted over 100 youth and some of their parents. By the end of the day we knew that we were creating something magical. In 2012 we hosted a STEM Summit at the University of Portland with over 150 youth in attendance. Since 2011 iUrban Teen has provided STEM+Arts+Trades career experiences to over 10,000 youth in the Pacific NW and now have chapters in Seattle and Los Angeles and in 2022 we launch in Dallas and Sacramento. Our staff serve students and families in NW Oregon and SW Washington. Want to volunteer with us?Get Involved!
