Empowering the future generation of STEM leaders
Our mission is to support the development of the next generation of STEM professionals and to do so in a way that addresses the need for equity and diversity in the STEM field.
We get high-potential, underrepresented youth interested in STEM, but we don't stop there. We also prepare our students, or as we consider them scholars, to graduate college ready and with the STEM skills and networks to build their future careers in the industry. By collaborating with programs throughout New York City and partnering with scientists, our scholars conduct authentic research, are immersed in the STEM culture, learn the vocabulary, and gain professional experience in the lab and in the field.
Our scholars, mentors, teachers and partners are a community that together is leveraging STEM to build opportunities in research, education and careers for young people of all backgrounds. At the core of the Consortium is the development of this community of practice where collectively we empower our scholars to be successful STEM leaders.
