Community Partners is proud to announce Mentees on the Move - a STEM mentoring program made possible by through the Palm Beach County STEM Education Council and the School District of Palm Beach County.
Through a collaboration with the South Florida Science Center, this program is aimed to improve the STEM pipeline, inspire the next generation, and empower STEM professionals to positively influence our community.
We need you!
Keeping students from dropping out of the STEM Talent Pipeline is essential in meeting US job demands. Nearly 30% of students say they would like to pursue STEM and this number is increasing, but we can do more.
You can help strengthen the STEM Pipeline.
