IGESL SEEKING MIDDLE SCHOOLS IN PA, NY, NJ, DE FOR YESS (Youth Engaged in STEM & Service) PROGRAM
Contingent upon federal funding, the YESS program will engage young people in service-learning activities that address local needs in order to build healthy communities. The YESS program will strengthen ties between schools, families and communities through service-learning and the use of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum to promote healthy personal environments, family/school environments and community environments.
It is the goal of the IGESL, through the YESS program, to encourage students to cultivate resilience and developmental assets while developing workplace-readiness skills, exploring career options, demonstrating active citizenship and giving back to their community through service-learning.
Schools interested in pursuing this opportunity must convene a project team of four faculty members including a minimum of one administrator and teachers from at least two STEM disciplines. Priority will be given to schools new to service-learning as well as schools servicing a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced lunch.
