END OF YEAR campaign to support LSA's Spring 2013 programs in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Lawrence, and Worcester.
DEADLINE = December 31, 2012... All donations are tax deductible!
Latino STEM Alliance partners with schools, private industry, community groups, and academia to bring STEM to underserved youth who would otherwise not have such an opportunity. LSA identifies existing and successful STEM enrichment programs by researching the national landscape. We then bring the programs to our partner schools and community groups and deliver the activities to the youth they serve, at their facility. Our goal is to enable underserved youth to experience hands-on STEM enrichment activities in order to inspire them to consider STEM related careers.
A unique aspect of LSA is to provide Scientists and Engineers of diverse backgrounds to serve as role models for the youth and collaborate with them on the hands-on activities. Often times, these professionals grew up in the same neighborhood as the students. This allows the youth to realize that others who share their background have found success in STEM fields.
