Jobs in S.T.E.M. related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) offer a wealth of opportunities not only currently but for generations to come. Unfortunately, African-Americans are under-represented in these fields. Often because we are not aware of the opportunities that exist.
This year, YP is again partnering with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to host a STEM project at one of our area schools to encourage our kids to explore opportunities in these fields. Join us at the Discovery Health Sciences School in Kenner for a day of education and fun with our kids.
This year's competition will focus on wind energy. Teams will compete to create the most effective windmill. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.
To make this program a success we need VOLUNTEERS. Join us on Friday morning, April 25th from 8 am to 12 noon to support our kids and introduce them to new career options. Any questions, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, don't forget to wear your YP t-shirt or a red or black t-shirt representing our YP colors.
LET'S MAKE AN INVESTMENT IN THE NEXT GENERATION. SEE YOU THERE!!
