Mission

STARBASE Mentoring combines STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities with a relationship-rich, school-based environment to provide the missing link for at-risk youth making the transition from elementary to middle school. It extends the positive impact of STARBASE through a team mentoring approach which solidifies students’ attachment to school and engagement in STEM.

  • Team mentoring
  • Targeting 6th – 8th graders
  • STEM activities
  • Team building
  • Goal setting
  • Clubs meet 1 day for 2 hours per week during each semester

Outcomes For Participating Youth
