Program Manager Laura George and Program Coordinator Fiona Kuzmack presented via webinar for the Utah Society for Environmental Education in January, giving an overview of the Youth In Custody program as a whole, the role of educators in the Juvenile Justice System, and the element that STEMCAP hopes to contribute.
We had viewers join in from across the country, contributing to the conservation with many insightful questions! We were so grateful to partner with USEE to broaden access to programming for our Youth in Care students!
USEE’s description of the event:
“STEMCAP’s mission is to provide pathways that broaden understanding and exchange between Youth in Custody and STEM communities. The Utah State Board of Education defines Youth-in-Custody as: “Individuals under the age of 21 who are in custody of or receiving services from the Utah Department of Human Services or an equivalent Native American tribe, or who are being held in juvenile detention facilities.”
STEMCAP works in facilities that span the whole spectrum of Youth-in-Custody, working in facilities that range from juvenile detention centers to residential treatment centers.
Laura George, Program Manager, and Fiona Kuzmak, Program Coordinator, will present an overview of STEMCAP’s programs and work as well as a more in-depth look at their Mission STEMCAP program and Milkweed and Monarch conservation project.”
