Google Helps Urban League Provide College Experience To Youth

The Seattle Medium – Now in its second year, the program has more than doubled, from 37 students in 2016 to over 90 enrollees this year. Google helped fund last year’s pilot program, and is granting $50,000 to the program this year.

Over the course of six weeks, students in the program will be immersed in various STEAM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics), with courses designed to stimulate curiosity and appreciation for the wide range of college degrees and career opportunities available to them.
