Our mission is to end generational poverty one student, one family, one community at a time. We create pathways and opportunities for underrepresented individuals interested in pursuing careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics, and entrepreneurship
Established in 2020, Gas It Up Foundation has several planned initiatives.
The STEAM-E Labs promote proficiency in science, technology, engineering, art, math, and now entrepreneurship for youth. In the STEAM-E Labs, every child has the opportunity to explore, create and inspire. Using their hands and intuition, children build the skills necessary to become lifelong learners and informed, conscientious future leaders.
We provide in-school and out of school STEAM-E based curricula maker spaces, project-based learning, career planning and preparation.
The Gas It Up Foundation fellowship program provides multi-year internships to students of color in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Each student works as a paid summer intern for each summer following their selection as a Gas It Up Foundation Fellow through their college graduation, gaining significant on-the-job training in their field and making connections with colleagues and mentors that will last a lifetime. Our fellows graduate with invaluable work experience and a head-start in whichever career they choose
