The 360 Cradle to Careers partnership provides a program continuum to support communities improve the quality of life for youth and families by inspiring, exciting, and engaging students living in public and affordable housing communities and underserved demographics in the diverse and challenging fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The goal is to provide exposure and encourage students to pursue an education and subsequent careers in STEM resulting in higher academic performances and improved economic forecasts for participants in underrepresented demographics. We provide approaches that employ innovative strategies or target particular niches that have yielded significant impacts. Lastly, we provide academic and social support and integration to students in STEM fields regardless of their racial or ethnic background, yet promote greater awareness, access, participation and support among underrepresented minority students.
Our community development tier is proof that Collective Impact works. Paid internships allow our program participants to implement acquired geospatial technical skills from our classroom into STEM career fields. Our youth build and or restore architectural structures within cities nationwide. They transform living facilities into safe, environmental friendly and energy efficient Smart geospatial designs with the assistance of our STEM Innovation Network partnerships.
We provide access and motivation to improve access to all postsecondary education and technical training and increase underrepresented minority student awareness of and motivation for STEM education and careers through improved information, counseling, and outreach. We educate parents and prepare community children for school through preschool and early education programs that develop reading readiness, provide early mathematics skills, and introduce concepts of creativity and discovery. Our program continuum include academic courses, workshops and seminars, career counseling, and social activities that have positive effects on persistence, as well as positive effects on academic skills, test scores, first-year retention, and graduate rates.
