Kaye Crawford is a retired early childhood educator, tutor, mentor, advocate, and former accountant. She holds a Bachelor's degree in business, and a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. Ms. Kaye founded STEMS4Girls because she realized that certain communities face enormous challenges in gaining access to 21st century science and technology resources, and afterschool enrichment activities required for exploratory and supportive opportunities that prepare children to see themselves as future scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs. Through after-school enrichment and mentorship programs, Ms. Crawford seeks to provide equal access to resources and equity for all.

Fall Forward STEMS4Girls Family & Friends!
Autumn has begun, and as we march towards the end of the year, many are returning back to school, back to work, and adjusting to our new normal. COVID-19 has had a major impact on the lives of everyone, and we commend you all for continuing to weather the storm with us. We truly appreciate your support in these uncertain times.
2021 Highlights – June – September 30
Falling into business, we continue to provide learning opportunities in our community, and we have expanded our range of services and increased opportunities for the youth to get involved in our science and technology services. . Since our last newsletter, our organization has expanded its office space at the Oasis Center, making room for our new Administrative team as well as our STEM Plus Tutoring Program. This added space will also provide room for the S4G Youth Club of Tallahassee, a promising group aspiring STEM leaders. In addition to our physical growth, we have also seen an influx of volunteers, so much so that there is now a waitlist for onboarding volunteers. We were also nominated for a local grant, #GIVETLH, which means we will be featured in the Tallahassee Democrat as well as in the running for a $10,000 grant. Stay tuned for more information on how to vote and support STEMS4Girls. All of this serves us by increasing our social traction, and therefore our ability to further our mission through additional state funding and COVID opportunities.
As we draw closer to the end of 2021, here are some important events:
We sincerely hope you will continue to support STEMS4Girls’ focus on greater parity in STEM education and careers. Together, we can build an innovative and sustainable after-school system that will serve all students with high-quality opportunities to develop the STEM skills needed for them to engage in their classrooms, become financially secure in the 21st century workforce, and, ultimately, propel our economy forward.
In closing, we ask that you…
Hold us accountable by asking the hard questions.
Connect us to resources that will help us grow.
Encourage and praise us when we get it right.
And of course, correct us when we don't.
Again, thank you on behalf of the S4G Board of Directors.
