Programs for Underserved Audiences

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Educators engage and empower K–12 youth involved in BSA in environmental badges, awards, service projects, and other advancements. These funds also support ongoing education with underserved populations in environmental STEM. Audiences include marginalized communities of color; socioeconomically disadvantaged populations; women and girls; English language learners; and other communities disproportionately harmed by environmental injustice. An integral partner in this project, the Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School in Philadelphia offers community-driven education focused on the origins, status, and future of the African world.
