Familie Tiez also implement STEM as a part of its tutoring and afterschool program. STEM in an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The STEM curriculum encompasses the desired learning that students will need to prepare them for their lives in a future that perhaps they don’t quite understand themselves. Combining STEM learning with the youth development expertise of afterschool professionals has the potential to revolutionize both fields by integrating each other’s strengths. Afterschool/Mentoring programs are proven to teach the so-called “soft skills” of communication, problem solving, and teamwork, which young people need for any career. Making use of the hours after school for STEM activities gives students time to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics which is key to getting kids into STEM careers.
