Annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Program
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.) Program promotes and encourages young women in grades 5 through 10 to focus on their education in fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, areas that under-served by women in the workforce. By conducting workshops in the above, the young girls that participate in the program receive hands on experience in these fields for their future careers. By exposing young women to successful role models in these areas who look like them and who they could consider as potential mentors and/or resources.
By raising the awareness of parents about various available financial assistance (scholarships, grants, work programs, etc.) to help fund their children’s college education, the STEM program also helps encourage parents to get an early start on planning for their children’s future education.
For more information on how you can volunteer or get your child enrolled in the
STEM program contact the STEM Committee.
Welcome to NCNW San Diego Online
We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.
–Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune
The March on Washington for Jobs, Justice, Freedom and Equality is not only a time for commemoration—it is our rallying point for the continuation of the Movement that pricked the consciousness of our nation and the world.
Today, for millions of Americans of every race, color and creed, the dream that Dr. King had remains elusive. Until we come together next month, let us continue to pray for our nation and especially for the families who have experienced the loss of loved due to violence. When we think about pay inequality, voting rights, racial profiling and laws such as Stand Your Ground, we know that there is much work to be done. Only when we eradicate inequality of all kinds can the dream become a reality for all people.
