Two Degrees: A YLC STEM Program

Two Degrees puts teens from underrepresented communities on the right path to developing the workforce skills needed for the jobs that do not yet exist. The program represents YLC s commitment to providing equity of access and opportunity no matter who teens are or where they come from. Two Degrees reduces the degrees of separation between teens and opportunities from the known six degrees, to at least two.

Features of Two Degrees Membership:

  • On-going access to the interactive Two Degrees website that allows teens to create their own profile, STEM resume, and learn about Bridge Coaches by sending them messages
  • On-going access to STEM opportunities (including internships) and professional connections on the Two Degrees website (coming soon)
  • Saturday sessions for teens to build professional skills and meet STEM professionals (we call them Bridge Coaches), twice per month between May and August
  • Ability for teens to win special prizes that will help them along their STEM journey
  • Ability for STEM professionals to impact a young person’s life in a short amount of time

We’re looking for passionate and creative STEM professionals who are willing and able to share career advice and in some cases, their entrepreneurial spirit with students who have a passion for STEM. Become a Bridge Coach and help inspire the next generation of diverse STEM professionals!
