Summary

We aim to resolve the Educational and Excellence Gap in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) for marginalized underserved children ages 5 to 18 years old. Inequity in education is pervasive globally. The students we serve are from Africa, the Caribbean and the USA. We help students who are struggling in school to improve their grades through our Cancer Smancer Reimagined - Living Your Best Sustainable Life program. Longterm they are steered toward careers in STEAM.

Challenge

Our organization works to resolve the Educational and Excellence Gap, defined as the differences between subgroups of students performing at the highest level of achievement. Inequity in education is pervasive across all academic levels for the under-served marginalized students. These students do not have the needed exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) as such they are left behind. This impacts their ability to compete and attain future high-paying jobs in STEAM.

Solution

IlluminXation Inc.'s Award Winning programs are intended to support students experiencing significant disengagement from school to take ownership of their education and excel. We incorporate alternative approaches to traditional learning which include visual and performing arts. Here they learn how to apply information which enables them to critically think, build confidence, communicate effectively, collaborate creatively with their peers in teams, and build ethical characteristics.

Long-Term Impact

IlluminXation Inc.'s current programs include Human Body Exhibit, and Cancer Smancer Reimagined-Living Our Best Sustainable Life enrichment; tutoring; and test prep. When delivered in elementary and middle school, our accelerated instructional offerings have the capacity to prepare students to excel in school (including those who are struggling academically or come from marginalized, under-served homes) and gain careers in STEAM gradually helping them to build their wealth and welfare.
