The covid – 19 court nightmares emphasized the need to connect more families and community members to court prevention resources and support services. The Philadelphia Participatory Defense Hubs have been doing great work supporting people with court support, if you have pending court concerns please connect with a Participatory Defense hub near you.
Slowly as a society, we have been transforming with smartphones, youtube, esports, and cryptocurrency. Covid shut downs highlighted the Information Age transformations taking place without so many. Free digital literacy and technology have become available to help fill the needs of people from various demographics. Exposing the opportunities is part of Pa Voter Court Watch, court prevention goal!!
We are building a Village around STEAM resources in Philadelphia, please consider joining us!!
The Philadelphia STEM Equity Collective is looking for adults for its 2022-23 Village Advisory Council (VAC). Since it “takes a village,” we are calling on parents, guardians, caregivers, mentors, coaches, teachers, neighbors, and other adults invested in positive youth development to apply for the council.
Members of the Village Advisory Council will help the Philadelphia STEM Equity Collective guide strategy, reflection, community engagement, outreach, accessibility, and advocacy. Each council member will join one of the Collective’s Workgroups ( Home & Community, K-12 Education, Post-Secondary Education, and Work Environment) and support the development of their goals
YOUR voice is crucial for the success of this initiative. We expect our committee to be a diverse group of adults representative of the Philadelphia region who champion our goal to increase the number of Black, Latinx and women Philadelphia students entering STEM careers by 2030. https://www.philastemeco.org/village-advisory-council.
