I am excited to improve diversity in rowing!
STEM to Stern is a nonprofit striving to break down barriers of access that students from underserved communities face in rowing and STEM. Our team has partnered with the Narragansett Boat Club in Providence to create a STEM to Stern program that gives underprivileged middle school students in our area the opportunity to row. As volunteers at the program, we are mentors to students both in rowing and in STEM. You can read more about the STEM to Stern program here: https://www.stemtosternrowing.org/about-us.
The money that we raise through this fundraiser will be split evenly between our local STEM to Stern program at Narragansett Boat Club and the broader STEM to Stern organization that is working to financially support existing programs and expand into more boathouses across the country.
As a minority on a predominantly white team, I am personally very excited to take real steps to improve accessibility and diversity in our sport, both in Providence and nationwide, and I hope that you share this excitement with me. STEM to Stern is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you to my Sponsors
