Face to Face Class – Youth Programs

STEM Camp

Join us at no cost

Every girl deserves access to a better future. That’s why we’ve launched the Verizon Innovative Learning program for rural young women – an engaging year-long program where they’ll learn design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality, and social entrepreneurship. Designed to create a more diverse pipeline for future careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) fields; no prior knowledge or experience is required. Only 12% of engineers and 22% of computer professionals are women, and we want our girls to have the right tools to pursue all available opportunities.
