Actua’s Go Where Kids Are program is a customized delivery model to engage youth from communities facing socio-economic challenges, including low-income, under- resourced and, rural or remote communities.
The Go Where Kids Are program recognizes that not all youth have the opportunity to attend a STEM outreach program, even if the program is offered at no cost. To engage these hard-to-reach youth, Actua and our network members partner with youth-serving organizations such as Family Resource Centres, immigrant community organizations, Boys and Girls Clubs, YM/YWCAs, and others who have existing relationships with these youth. Through this program the Actua network annually engages over 30,000 youth from underrepresented and underserved groups.
Our commitment is to provide sustained programming in these locations, returning each year to strengthen the impact of the programming on the youth we reach.
