PROGRAMS

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATH


Our STEM program strives for members to be inspired and prepare for a growing job market in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Through our curriculum, coinciding with what our students are learning in the classroom, we offer our members opportunities for hands-on experience. Each of our three Clubhouses has a STEM center equipped with a 3D printer, robotics kits, science activity supplies and computer programming software.

Raytheon, Tesoro Port of L.A., South Coast Botanic Garden and other organizations are integral parts of our STEM Program. Thank you to all who help us educate Boys & Girls Clubs members!
