FEATURED YDEKC MEMBER - STEM Paths Innovation Network
This month we’re eager to feature STEM Paths Innovation Network (SPIN), who have been members of YDEKC over the last year. They have been stewards in closing the opportunity gap in STEM education to support youth by offering STEM+Arts classes and programs to students in King County. SPIN exposes students to STEM fields and careers they may never have learned otherwise and envisions a world in which every student, family, and community can pursue science, technology, engineering, math, and arts fields.
SPIN offers after-school enrichment programs and will soon be offering a summer program in direct partnership with community organizations and school districts at no cost to families. To learn more or to sign up youth for SPIN programs, use the SPIN Student Interest Form. Since its founding in 2015, SPIN has served over 800 students, has over twenty community and school partners in the county, and is committed to serving students of color. Their work begins in elementary school with enrichment that introduces students to STEM. Through collaboration, mentorship, and capacity building in middle and high school, they add opportunities for youth leadership. Check out their blog and follow them on Instagram and Facebook to see their work in action.
They are currently hiring for several positions including two Program Manager roles — apply today to join their team. If you’re interested in volunteering to support students’ interests in STEM, fill out their Volunteer Interest Form at any time.
And don't forget to join STEM Paths Innovation Network, YDEKC, and SOWA tomorrow for Partnership Quick Connections: Out-of-School-Time, Place-Based Partnership Highlight!
