Genentech Helps Bridge STEM Education Gap for Youth

Genentech Helps Bridge STEM Education Gap for Youth

Genentech is a longtime and valuable partner of North County Lifeline and Club Crown Heights! The Club Crown Heights STEM Education Project was made possible through the very generous funding that launched the program in 2016. Since then, Genentech has continued to support the program allowing Club Crown Heights to consistently increase the size and the scope of the project which addresses the disparity in STEM education for low-income youth, an issue especially prevalent for Hispanic youth and girls of all ethnicities. 

Genentech staff volunteer their time, talents, and expertise to the tutoring program, reading groups, and lead STEM educational activities. Additionally, Genentech’s leadership – especially that of Paul Garza, Genentech Director and North County Lifeline Board Member, and Jaime Gonzales Vallejo, Genentech Upstream Manufacturing Supervisor and North County Lifeline Board Member – continue to provide vital support that is enabling Club Crown Heights youth to overcome obstacles, succeed in school, and go on to successful careers.

Genentech has continued to provide vital support that makes the Club Crown Heights STEM Education Project possible. Thank you, Genentech!
