IT STANDS FOR SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, & MATH
THE PRIMARY GOAL
STEM2HEArts is fiscally sponsored by the Trinity Assurance Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 Organization (click on the Trinity Assurance Foundation graphic above to visit their page).
The goal of STEM2HEArts is to bring Science, Technology, Engineering,
Math, Health, Education, & Arts to all K-14 students & their families. We have a special focus on delivering our comprehensive hands-on educational services to students & their families residing in foster care, group homes, juvenile detention centers, homeless shelters, & government subsidized housing developments in the greater San Francisco Bay Area (K-14 is Kindergarten through the 2nd year of college). We intend to build a pipeline of new talent coming directly from our poorest neighborhoods. Our new diverse tech pipeline will connect directly into the hallowed halls of the tech companies offering the most promising and rewarding jobs, careers, internships, and supplier contracting opportunities in Silicon Valley, and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We do our work with the generosity of our partners, and like minded friends who contribute their time, talent, resources, & financial gifts to insure that our technology sector is "inclusive" of all diverse local talent.
"Our ultimate goal is to transform needy communities into communities with the educated talent that your company needs. We will find & develop the talent by utilizing employer directed learning objectives into our hands-on & age appropriate STEM educational curriculum." - Derek L. Toliver

EVERY STUDENT CAN LEARN STEM FASTER THAN YOU THINK
Here is what Derek had to say about the problem and challenges we face in San Francisco & Silicon Valley: "Our poorest residents don't deserve a poor education, limited opportunities, crime, poor access to healthcare, unemployment, & underemployment. We can change the world one mind at a time by working together to increase inclusion for all. We have to breakdown the walls and barriers that lock our poorest residents out of the opportunity to be included (INCLUSION IS THE KEY) in our "booming" tech economy."
"We have to build employer directed STEM Learning Centers in public housing developments to educate our K-14 students today and not tomorrow. Tomorrow is too late." (K-14 is Kindergarten to year 2 of college) - Derek L. Toliver
