Umbrella Program

MOVING FULL S.T.E.A.M AHEAD WITH PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY YOUTH
Old Dominion (VA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporates strives to provide an integrated approach to preparing young people to succeed in the 21st Century workforce.   To equip African-American youth to use their intellect and spirits to achieve and to develop the necessary tools to be responsive to academic, technology, the arts, health and social awareness of our changing community.  This is possible due to community partnerships opportunities through S.T.E.A.M. activities focused on STEAM BRICS (Goals):
