Partnerships and services with other agencies are paramount to enhance student health and wellbeing in the school setting. The program would not be as successful without networking with our very supportive community.

Have you seen our STEMM Bus driving through out our community ?? 

The wonderful people at SUNCOAST COMMUNITY TELCO donated this 12 seater bus to STEMM so that we can pick up the STEMM participants and their children.  We are very thankful for this extraordinary donation from such an amazing local company.  Their continuous support is so greatly appreciated.
