Hello Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to NOLA!
As most of you know, in the fall of 2018, STEM Next announced The Family Engagement Project, an Initiative of STEM Next Opportunity Fund with the goal of empowering families to support their children’s engagement in STEM and to unleash their untapped talent.
Focusing on three main objectives, the Family Engagement Project works to: (1) elevate the critical role of families in STEM; (2) build capacity of STEM programs to include family engagement strategies; and (3) create tools for the field to guide effective family involvement in STEM.
STEM Next Opportunity Fund is committed to ensuring that every child – especially girls, youth of color, kids in low-income communities, and youth with disabilities – has access to high-quality STEM experiences and the social capital that lead to greater opportunities in academics and careers.
We believe family engagement is a game changer and offer this White Paper to raise awareness of its importance and amplify promising practices.
How will you or your organization change the game in STEM with family engagement? Let us know. We welcome your thoughts and feedback as we collectively work to empower families to support children on a STEM learning journey.
– Ron, Teresa, Linda, Amanda
