The STEM Program aims to help children after school at Family Promise to:

  • learn the skills required of the modern workforce;
  • change their problem-solving skills from one of a fixed mindset to that of a growth mindset.

  • Enhance workplace ready skills for jobs of the future using Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality;
