Monday, October 19th through Friday, November 13th, Project SYNCERE will celebrate 11 years of providing STEM career pathway programs for Chicagoland’s underrepresented youth. There’s so much to celebrate!
Through our partnerships with schools, universities, community organizations, and other youth serving agencies, we have been able to provide nearly 3,500 students each year in our ENpowered Program with exciting project-based learning experiences, that have ignited their interest in STEM.
Our robust E-CADEMY Program continues to prepare students for careers in STEM by achieving a 100% enrollment of graduates in STEM majors at colleges and universities. Utilizing the nationally recognized, Project Lead The Way curriculum, our engineering instructors teach problem solving skills in a cohort model that has stimulated peer support and achievement in the program.
Project SYNCERE continues to deliver its innovative hands-on engineering programs virtually. While students are facing uncertainty in so many arenas, our program staff continues to affirm their value as leaders in our world who will create the future technological advances that will guide society forward.
It’s because of donors like you that we’ve been able to accomplish these successes for over a decade. During this anniversary season, our goal is to raise a minimum of $25,000 to continue lighting the pathways of inspiring youth to take their rightful place as the leaders of our world.
As we spend this time reflecting on the accomplishments of our students, we ask that you celebrate with a gift to help us ensure that this legacy continues.
