What is the STEM Community Leaders Program?
With the success and high retention rate of the Community STEM Clubs program, there arose a need to extend and expand STEM engagement opportunities for youth in grades 8 to 12. In response to this need, we developed and implemented the STEM Community Leaders (SCL) program.
This program provides youth with advanced and immersive STEM-based experiential learning opportunities directed towards the pursuit of postsecondary education and enhanced career aspirations. The program also provides a forum for community-based leadership and skill development by giving youth an opportunity to engage as facilitators within their community.
The three main program components are:
- Experiential STEM Learning
- Leadership and Positive Skills Development
- Community Engagement
Grades 8 to 12
- Term I: Summer (July-August)
- Term II: Fall (October to December)
- Term III: Winter (January to May)
There is no open application process for this program at this time.
