The Minnesota STEM Partnership is focused on broadening participation in STEM disciplines polarized around advancing and emerging technologies for students of color from urban centers across Minnesota. Our goal is to provide all programs barrier free to students who need it most. Like many rapidly expanding programs our greatest challenge as we scale is to become sustainable. We've learned a lot through our growth and as we fill in a significant number of gaps is that a majority of our students require more in terms of direct communication (phone vs email), transportation and even nutrition and snacks. We also recognize with our delivery model being as frugal and fiscally responsive, it still takes financial contributions in combination with over fifty volunteers will truly make a difference. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration in helping us grow and sustain this incredible program.
