Elementary and Middle School STEM Clubs
MGH Youth Scholars
STEM programming for secondary school students is more intensive and comprehensive. With our partners, East Boston High School, Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers, Revere High School, Chelsea High School, and the Charlestown community, the weekly curriculum on the MGH campus provides foundational learning for grades 9 through high school and beyond. The goal is to spark college aspirations and to understand the connection between a health or science career, and what it takes to get there. Summer enrichment in STEM curriculum takes place for students in STEM Camp in partnership with Wheelock College.
Summer Jobs for Youth
CCHI Youth Programs provides more than 1,000 youth each year with academic, life, and career skills that expand and enhance their educational and career options. MGH takes a “longitudinal approach” that recognizes the value of fostering STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills and interests in young people across a broad age spectrum, from 3rd grade to college. Students from schools and youth-serving programs across the Boston area participate in a variety of age-appropriate programs.
