Little Phoenixes Foundation
Empowering youth to dream, believe and rise through STEAM/STEM-based programs delivered directly to communities in need.
Little PHOENIXES Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization that began from a desire to make a difference in the lives of young children. We are dedicated to encouraging youth to DREAM a bright future, empowering them to BELIEVE in their ability, and inspiring them to RISE above the challenges and circumstances they face.
We use our STEAM lessons to empower. When we discuss skyscrapers, we teach our students they too can stand tall. When our students learn how planes fly, we want them to understand they too can reach great heights. When they learn about bridges, we want them to know they can endure loads while spanning from where they presently are to where they want to go.
Our desire is to go into neighborhoods and communities with customized curricula, introduce the principles of STEAM in fun and exciting ways, and create mentoring opportunities for youth that will continue to encourage them once the classes have concluded.
Our programs have included children from the Ward 8 community in D.C. as well as many who reside in Prince George's County, Maryland. Through partnerships with other community organizations, we are able to reach our goals of taking STEAM to those who need it the most.
