What We Stand For

E D U C A T I O N

We link students (and schools) with the careers and “real life” workplace experiences designed to ignite their curiosity, empower and prepare them for a changing economy. Accomplished through school partnerships, civic groups, and other public and private sector organizations, NYUL offers a succession of programming and services focused on technology, engineering, science, art, and math (STEAM). Together, we help students enlighten and develop skills needed in the competitive job market while making their educational experience relevant to the world they will experience as adults.
