Who we are

GoSTEM is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. At our Core we believe that the future is only as bright as those who shape it. Diversity in thought is what drives the future of innovation. We have been operating since January 2017, when we launched our high school engagement program. Since then we have expanded to additional Chicago Public Schools, and have established several university partners. In July 2019, through our nonprofit partnership with Erie Neighborhood House, we hosted a high school enrichment summer program.

How we work

We operate during the school day over the course of the academic year. The enrichment program has modules, which provide an overview of STEM careers through career exploration. In addition the program offers financial literacy and college planning that are designed to prepare students for success in higher ed. Horizons, our college support program, help students navigate the college application process and provide SAT/ACT prep. Furthermore, we use surveys and metrics that are incorporated into all our programming in order to improve the effectiveness of our teaching. Finally, we plan to track our student’s progression while providing mentorship and peer building through our college partner programs. Thereby, creating a self-sustaining cycle network of STEM professionals.
