Giving Back… Helping LET’S GO Boys & Girls Inspire Local Kids to Become STEM Professionals

Posted on Jan 20, 2020 in Jeff Nolte's Blog

LET’s GO Boys & Girls is near and dear to our hearts at CTS. This locally supported non-profit is making a big difference in our community today, and their efforts will pay big dividends in the future. 

LET’S GO’s mission is to inspire and support under-served students to become STEM professionals. LET’S GO initiatives help break the cycle of generational poverty – a systemic problem facing our country. Even with a healthy economy, there are over 38 million people living at or below the poverty line in America. 

Utilizing a “train the trainer” model, LET’S GO delivers STEM learning experiences to over 800 students a year. LET’S GO-trained teachers incorporate STEM into their school-day classrooms, focusing on Science, Robotics, Engineering and Math instruction. 

Students form teams to solve technical challenges and build the skills they’ll need on the job, such as Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. They learn these vital “soft skills” by doing.

At CTS headquarters, we support this high-impact organization with office, conference and storage space, as well as use of our office technology and phone systems to pursue their important work.

Are you a STEM professional? There are a variety of ways to volunteer with LET’S GO including tutoring, assisting a lesson, coaching, mentoring and guest speaking. If you want to serve your community and help increase STEM interest among students, please reach out here.
