Northern BC Youth Engagement Program
We want to reach you, wherever you are! With the help of some fantastic funding agencies, we are reaching more girls in rural communities and northern areas of British Columbia. We want to learn more about how we can help inspire and support girls in these communities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). If you would like to work with us, please contact our ms infinity coordinator at [email protected].
These Youth Engagement programs would not be possible without the generous support of our SCWIST members, volunteers, donors and funding agencies.
