Organize a Math or Science Club

Math and Science Clubs are a great way to spark a child’s interest in learning. They give students a chance to question how or why things work and work toward solutions (problem-solving). A Math and Science Club can give students a safe environment to learn and interact with others with similar interests. They can also provide a safe place for students to explore and discover, especially for those who may not have strong support at home. You do not need to be a teacher or a scientist to start a club; just bring your enthusiasm to inspire young minds.

Help support the youth of your community by starting a book club at your local school, library, or community center. If you are unable to start a book club, think of other ways to serve the youth of your community.
