Out-of-school-time opportunities that provide science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) provide transformative opportunities for youth. High-quality afterschool STEM programs boost students’ proficiency in math and science, increase their likelihood of graduation, help students connect STEM to their lives and future, and put them on the path to pursuing a career in the STEM fields. 

To build more equitable, relevant opportunities in Oregon, we must invest in engaging STEM learning through afterschool and summer programs that can reach a diverse range of students. Watch and share our PSA on Afterschool STEM: Transformative Opportunities for Youth.
