At C4K, we combine mentoring and technology to prepare youth for brighter futures!
We equip local youth (6th – 12th grade) from low-income households with 21st-century STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) skills to be competitive in future college and careers.
We provide mentoring in a creative, safe, and supportive out-of-school learning environment. We give youth access to professional-grade technology, project-based learning, and youth leadership opportunities.
At C4K, youth learn by participating in:
- Nine+ months of 1:1 mentoring with trained, volunteer mentors
- Drop-in group mentoring at the Clubhouse
- Exposure to local tech careers through job shadowing, field trips, and guest speakers, all helping youth understand how the skills they are learning at C4K make them qualified for living wage STEM careers.
- Access to resources through The Clubhouse Network, a program of the Museum of Science, Boston in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab.
Through our latest Youth Impact Survey, youth members report increased proficiency in STEAM skills. Responses indicate that C4K is a place where members feel a meaningful sense of belonging. 100% of C4K members said they felt their mentors accepted them, and 100% felt they could trust their mentors.
