STEMcityPHL seeks to bridge the disconnect between Philadelphia’s youth and the growing number of STEM career opportunities in this city. There is a disconnect in the pipeline between talent development in Philadelphia’s K-12 institutions and the recruitment of such talent from local businesses.
STEMcityPHL is a civic campaign to build collective public will for excellent STEM education and opportunities, ensuring that all Philadelphians can participate in the economy of today and tomorrow. They act with urgency to create a citywide brand for STEM efforts, provide a single access point for STEM interest to foundations, nonprofits, businesses, and schools, and ensure quality STEM programming is available across the K-12 continuum, among other initiatives. Their ultimate goal is to increase the overall STEM fluency of Philadelphia’s youth, which wil empower them and open up even more doors toward a bright future.
