The Parris Foundation: S.T.E.M.ulating Minds
The Parris Foundation is dedicated to promoting educational opportunities and fostering awareness in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) via scholarships and community outreach educational programs. Our marquee program, S.T.E.M.ulating Minds,combines weekend enrichment with tutoring to enhance in-school learning.
TPF believes that attracting young people to STEM is the key to closing the achievement gap, and eradicating the disparity in academic performance between disadvantaged and privileged students. In an effort to break the cycle of poverty in underprivileged communities, The Parris Foundation equips disenfranchised students with the tools needed to pursue STEM disciplines, academically and professionally. The Parris Foundation's access programs help us to prepare the next generation of STEM leaders.
