How are you smart?
That is a question we want each of our members to be able to answer.
Are they good with numbers and computers? Maybe they are good at building with wood, or fixing machines. Maybe they are like me and are good at helping others.
You never know how you are smart until you try. So we will help kids try.
Our new STEAM Innovation Labs will provide hands on introductions to everything from Agronomy to Structural Engineering. These Labs, which will be constructed at 4 different clubhouses, will spark an interest in careers that exist in our own backyard. We will inspire kids to learn more about STEAM and about themselves.
When we set out to raise the $5 million to build these labs and invest in our clubs, we knew it was necessary. We also knew it would be a challenge.
Today, after a pandemic, global crisis and shutdown it is even more necessary. We are also nearing the finish line. We have raised well over $4 million and are on track to hit our goal.
I couldn't be more grateful to our supporters. I included their names in this e-mail. Every single person, company, and foundation has made an impact on the life of a young person in our community.
