STEM education is the foundation upon which bright futures in technology are built.
Education is the key to Latinos and other underserved communities achieving economically, educationally, and in every other way. Similarly, pursuing education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is the key for underserved and under-represented communities to achieve success in technology fields.
ALLvanza works to ensure a diverse technology workforce of the future is prepared through STEM education starting at the earliest possible age. It is crucial for parents, teachers, and our communities to encourage young people to pursue STEM education if offered as a part of their school’s curriculum. If there is no STEM program at an individual school then ALLvanza advocates on behalf of the students to start a STEM program and offer these classes.
- Meet with decision makers (school board, other administrators) to advocate for their consideration of adding STEM courses and STEM concepts to course offerings and curricula
- Plan and execute STEM education events with students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders
- Additional activities and advocacy to encourage Latinos and others in underserved communities to pursue STEM education and careers (see Programs for more details)
