Happy Summer STEMS4Girls Family & Friends
I want to thank everyone who participated in the fundraising events in March and May. We were able to raise over $2,000 to help with remodeling our donated office space at the Oasis Center for Women and Girls and provided more tutoring services to our youth. Moreover, the generosity and input of our supporters have helped the board to consider obtaining a larger space as a priority for 2022.
2021 Highlights – January – June 30 2021
It’s all good! We continue to meet the needs of our community, as we have expanded the range of services we can provide during the pandemic, which increased opportunities for the youth to get involved in our science and technology services. During our challenge to creatively use technology resources to advance our vision, we were offered a small office space, doubled the number of volunteers, created a youth science and technology club, received increased funding, and added several new collaborative partnerships. We are on track to expand our outreach and expose more youth to STEM education and careers after the school day ends, increase capacity, retain volunteers and convert them to become contributors. Additionally, we are seeing positive results in how developing youth’s curiosity, capacity, and interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education at an early age impacts how they engage in their school classrooms, their homes, and community.

We sincerely hope you will continue to support STEMS4Girls’ focus to increase the presence of young women in STEM career opportunities by advocating for more science and technology interactive afterschool programs in all communities regardless of zip code. Together, we can build an innovative and sustainable organization that is successful at exposing youth, who live in often forgotten and marginalized communities, to the skill sets required to secure good paying jobs in a 21st century technology-driven society.
