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.
