Academy, Charles R. Drew Charter High School, and Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy, this program will work with 55 youth to:
  • Increase the number and percent of youth enrolling in higher education.
  • Increase the number of student pursuing careers in Math. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design (STEAM2D) sectors.
