Grow a Generation makes meaningful projects possible. We partner with students, grades 3-16, and help them bring to fruition portfolio worthy projects while developing skills in Science, Technology Engineering, Math and the exponential technologies that are transforming our economy and world.
The new conceptual age marks a shift in what jobs of the future will look like, makes obsolete many aspects of our current education system, is marked by changing global markets and and explosion of information access. A new generation is needed. It is a generation with the 21st century skills of innovation, critical thinking, collaboration, emotional intelligence, resilience, leadership and vision. It is a generation that is literate in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). It is a generation with unique experience applying their passions into project based and inquiry based opportunities.
Grow a Generation is committed to help you find or support the passion based opportunities your children and teens need to grow and thrive. Our mission is to give young people the tools and support to become digital storytellers, STEM athletes, and world changers by making meaningful projects that build a more just and beautiful world.
