STEAM Achievers’ principal objective is to bridge the STEAM education, academic and career achievement gaps for diverse students, young adults and adults, including neuro-divergent individuals, individuals from under resourced communities and underrepresented communities.
We specialize in creating very unique and powerful programs that put the dots so close together, that scholars can visualize and plan for careers in science, technology, engineering , art and math.
STEAM Achievers brings together key corporations, government agencies, cities, universities, school districts, for profit and nonprofit organizations and partners with them to deliver unique, impactful, innovative, real-world experiences, training boot camps, media-acclaimed Hackathons, workshops, summer camps, mentorship programs, internship, apprenticeships and employment opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics fields.
Since its inception, STEAM Achievers has had countless kids, youth, young adults and adult participants of our many STEAM programs who graduated from high school, pursued degrees, trades and certification programs in STEAM, interned or got placed in STEAM jobs.
With help from our partners and sponsors, our goal is to scale the STEAM Achievers participants who enter into STEM careers to 100,000 by 2027.
