In4All, BESThq tenant and community partner, takes very seriously their newly redefined mission and vision which underscores their “commitment to education, equity, and opportunity for all students in Oregon.” (www.in4all.org)
A local non-profit, In4All partners with businesses and individuals in the community to address and actively affect the lives of the thousands of Oregon’s marginalized students who will not complete high school on time or who are on the path to not finishing at all. From internships for high school aged students to hands-on learning opportunities through the STEM Connect program for elementary and middle school students, In4All strives to provide experiences for Oregon students that empower their futures. BESThq is proud to be a partner organization supporting the work of In4All through the STEM Connect program.
The In4All STEM Connect program partners with 23 schools, across 8 districts, and will touch the lives of almost 3,500 students. Twenty local businesses and corporations partner with In4All to bring hands-on math and science activities designed to ignite possibilities for area 4th and 5th graders who, to this point, have not made the connection between STEM and their futures.
