About the Global STEM Alliance
About the Global STEM Alliance

The Global STEM Alliance (GSA) is dedicated to preparing today’s youth for tomorrow’s STEM careers. With a focus on personal narratives, mentorship and real-world learning, the GSA is equipping students with the skills and role models necessary to prepare them for life and work.

Building a better STEM pipeline through proven methods

GSA programs are built on researched and established best practices, guided by our STEM Education Framework:

Personal Narratives: We mine our membership of 20K+ worldwide to surface stories that resonate with young people and celebrate the achievements of diverse STEM professionals.

Mentorship from real scientists and engineers: We recruit STEM professionals, grad students and postdocs to mentor students both in person (in classrooms and afterschool programs) and online.

Real World Learning: We engage students in solving real problems, addressing issues they care about, and collaborating in ways that reflect the world of work—whether in person or online.

Join us!

If you represent an educational institution serving students in grades 7 through 12 (or equivalent), your school can become a Member of the Academy to gain special access to GSA programs and educational resources, individual Memberships for teachers and staff, and more.
