As part of Chancellor Khosla's commitment to assuring that talented young people from the community have access to the university, UC San Diego Extension’s STE[+a]M program presents a free summer youth program focused on encouraging civic engagement, leadership, learning and career/education preparedness.
Full STEAM Ahead: Community-based college credits
"This is exactly the kind of program that Chancellor Khosla supports and encourages," said Ed Abeyta, director of Extension's K-16 program. "We're proud to be involved."
Participating students in the five-week program must reside in the neighborhoods of southeast San Diego (City Council District 4).
The program will be held weekly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1 pm to 4 pm, June 24 through July 23.
Program sites include Joe & Vi Jacobs Center, Project New Hope, and Mt. Hope Community Garden – all located within the District 4 communities.
With funding from SDG&E’s “Inspiring Future Leaders” grant, the program will also delve into the history of southeast San Diego as well as such themes as food justice and urban gardening.
Through a blend of digital technologies and hands-on activities, students will learn how to directly contribute to the betterment of their community.
Students can earn college credit or community service hours while learning about career paths in STEA[+a]M – the fields of science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math.
