STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and hopefully pursue a job or liking in a STEM field
Research has shown that teens who engage in community service are more responsible with higher self-esteem and resilience. Volunteering helps the teens gain new skills necessary for the job market such as leadership, communication skills, dependability, time management, and decision making. Therefore, Girlz Talk United value providing opportunities for our youth to be a positive IMPACT within their community.
Our sports program exists to organize community based youth sports that would provide a safe, caring environment for youth to develop character, discipline and high self-esteem through the vehicle of mentoring and athletics. The program serves the youth in Birmingham and surrounding areas.
