Developing Young People Through STEM

The Y is helping all children reach their full potential by supporting their unique youth development journeys. At more than 1,000 YMCA sites nationwide, kids are engaged in year-round STEM activities that nurture their curiosity, inspire creativity and teach them how to succeed.

Kids who participate in STEM activities:

  • Learn how to solve problems
  • Develop critical-thinking skills
  • Become comfortable with failure and trying again
  • Learn to work successfully in teams
  • Develop self-confidence
  • Are able to see themselves in STEM careers

Learn how the Y is supporting equity in STEM to help every kid advance!

Upcoming STEM Events at the Skagit YMCA

Women continue to be underrepresented in STEM careers (such as computer scientists, engineers, biologists and more) — but the Y is here to change that. By incorporating fair and equitable practices into our programming, we’re helping young leaders understand the positive impact they can have by promoting gender equity in STEM.
