Milwaukee, WI – The Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) will be partnering with the Milwaukee chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to engage youth in a National Day of Service at the Northside YMCA located at 1350 W. North Avenue on Thursday, April 23, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Fulfilling the Education and Youth Empowerment item on the National Urban League’s five-point agenda, MULYP and NSBE will team up to provide education on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to more than 50 students who are participating in the YMCA’s Black Achievers program.
As this year’s theme is focused on STEM, all participating students will explore engineering concepts like coding and discuss options on related career paths with MULYP and NSBE. “Our National Day of Service project will be able to help students see a magnitude of different career options and also show them different opportunities to build their skillsets. I look forward to giving them access to an array of young professionals to network with,” stated Sean Lowe, Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals President.
The Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals, along with 64 other young professional chapters from around the country, will host similar events during this week. This event is free and open to the public.
