THE STORY

Our Differentiators

There are hundreds of STEM outreach organizations, yet STEMchats is unlike any of them. Our student-led organization allow us to capitalize off of youth insights and enterprise to drive bottom-up social change in order to offer two unique business propositions.

  • Our team consist of mostly first-generation + low-income students (FGLI) , as well as women and LGBTQ+ students. This puts us in a unique position to fully understand the problems that these disadvantaged communities face and allows us to build groundbreaking STEM educational initiatives to tackle the root of the problem.

  • Our unique funneling model builds long-lasting relationships between STEMchats members and our target communities. Through our selective fellowship program, the most promising students impacted by our initiatives join the team and eventually become full team members to eventually create their own STEM outreach programs.
