What Guides BEAM

BEAM asks itself, "what do most scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers do growing up?" and then, "how can we bring those same opportunities to underserved students?"

BEAM then creates a series of experiences for students in grades 6-12: a 6th grade summer program in Los Angeles and New York City; a 7th grade residential summer program on college campuses; advising from 8th-12th grade to help students attend great high schools, pass algebra in 8th grade, access other enrichment programs, and ultimately go to a great college. Students declaring STEM majors even get support during college. Through our work, BEAM helps to diversify other enrichment programs and gives students a realistic chance at the career of their dreams.
