STEAM Leadership Cohort

Young Echelon offers a cohort-style, 4-year high school STEAM Leadership program that will support youth through their high school journey, help them to blaze their trail, and reach new heights. Each year offers a stand-alone experience but builds upon each other to develop college-ready, career-prepared, purpose-driven youth leaders. YE uses STEAM programs to challenge our students to take an innovative approach to problem-solving, work as a team to accomplish goals, and practice effective communication through presentations and public speaking. By providing access to quality programs and services we foster confidence, community, and connection. STEAM Leadership Cohort Format:
