STEM Hubs Technical Assistance

Oregon Community Foundation seeks to ignite partnerships between business and education to advance opportunities for rural, low-income, students of color and girls in CTE-STEM (continuing technical education–science, technology, engineering, and math). Oregon Community Foundation asked Oregon Solutions to provide technical assistance to STEM Hubs across the state in an effort to leverage and multiply match-grant funding aimed at 1) increasing investment and engagement in STEM Hubs from community leaders, private sector partners, and civic champions; 2) increasing alignment within a region and across sectors and existing initiatives; and 3) developing focus and shared commitment to move partners toward concrete action. The focus was on geographic areas, industry partners, and funders where STEM Hubs have struggled to gain this support in the past.
