Our programs incorporate STEAM-focused, hands-on activities to promote 21st-century skills along with art, music, literacy, and physical activity. We help our students build a foundation forged of self-worth, intellect, hard work, and community engagement in hopes that they will embody these concepts their whole lives.
Meaningful Mindz provides resources and connects our youth with the community in constructive and meaningful ways. We do this by combining volunteerism and community-based programming with safe, fun, educational lessons that have real-life applications.
Most of our local economy/industry is directly related to S.T.E.A.M. we intend to work with employers to educate youth about potential careers in the area. We believe this will benefit youth and employers by providing a robust and engaged workforce for the future of carbon county.
Our Program helps bridge the resource gap for students between their home, school, and community lives. We wanted to ensure that our youth were active in their communities and that individuals have the necessary tools to create their own paths toward success.
The goal of STEAM-based learning is to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in the future. STEAM is important because it helps incorporate multiple disciplines at the same time and promotes learning experiences that allow children to explore, question, research, discover, and exercise creative, innovative building skills. STEAM teaches critical thinking skills and instills a creative passion for innovation. Beyond the benefit of learning science, technology, engineering, arts, and math, STEAM assists in problem-solving and exploratory learning that fuel success across a variety of tasks and disciplines. STEAM education creates creative, critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy.
Meaningful Mindz STEAM Hub is committed to helping young minds grow and develop in positive ways by empowering youth so that they not only survive but thrive well into adulthood.
Our programs focus on S.T.E.A.M, Play, Social Emotional Learning, Academics, Prevention, Advocacy, and Community Involvement in a fun, engaging hands-on life coaching approach.
Youth are naturally curious and love to investigate and explore. They learn about their world through multiple modalities using their five senses. Every waking moment of a child’s day is about learning. They are exploring how things work, move, and connect.
Thank you for joining the Meaningful Mindz! We are excited to have you!
