K-12 Youth Initiative

Today, changing demographics, an aging workforce, and a globally competitive market necessitate increasing the number of underrepresented groups in the STEM workforce. However, economic inequality and educational barriers prevent BIPOC girls and women from being exposed to and educated in the essential disciplines of the modern-day economy. We created the K-12 Youth Initiative program to address these pressing issues and help young BIPOC students capitalize on this opportunity.

Featuring our immersive, hands-on after-school educational program, a tour of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and our SparkHart Hackathon, our K-12 Youth Initiative is advancing the success of students of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and preparing them for the future workforce.
