The Parris Foundation:
What is the Impact?:
Join the Leadership team of CECNY as we make an impact on the community by supporting The Parris Foundation: S.T.E.M.ulating Minds program. Many of The S.T.E.M.ulating Minds participants come from low-income households and would benefit from leveraging education to break the cycle of poverty in their family. The S.T.E.M.ulating Minds program curricula include innovative and interactive software and teaching techniques that participants love! Over a single session (8-15 weeks), weekend enrichment participants show marked improvements in math & science with an average increase of 1-2 letter grades.
Who can help?:
Whether you're great, good or fair at Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), you can help make an impact on inner-city youth.
Why should I help?
Beacause 90% of students living in poverty are not proficient in math, or ready for college.
Because you will be making an impact in the lives of NYC Youth.
Because the program exposes middle school youth from multiple boroughs in New York City to STEM. It prepares them for state Math and Science assessments and teaches participants the fundamentals of computer programming and robotics.
Because as S.T.E.M.ulating Minds expands to more locations to serve more youth, there are growing needs for resources like: computers, robots, books, supplies, tutors and other items that aid The Parris Foundation in executing successful programs.
We'd like to invite you to please make a difference by donating whatever you can and spreading the word so that we can impact and influence as many young lives as possible.
