Through the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) Mentors Youth Development Program, 20 Trenton High School students mentor students from Joyce Kilmer Middle School and Grace A. Dunn Middle School who attend after-school programs in STEAM and enrichment projects. CHSofNJ matches each STEAM Student Mentor with two middle school students for mentoring each semester. The 20 high school students support and advise 60 middle school students during the school year.
Their main focus of achievement in this program has three goals:
1. To introduce students to STEAM activities — science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics;
2. To expose students to professionals, careers and colleges in STEAM;
3. To increase student interest and identity related to STEAM.
