About YMWIC Foundation, Inc.

Young Men and Women In Charge (YMWIC) Foundation, Inc’s mission is to empower and prepare economically disadvantaged and historically underrepresented youth to excel and become leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers through academic tutoring, mentoring and financial assistance programs, accomplished by leveraging alliances with K‐12 school districts, universities, corporations and our committed partners.

We accomplish this mission by embracing a family model that provides individually targeted services: academic support and tutoring; involvement of the family in each young scholar’s program; participation in YMWIC programs, such as robotics competition and college tours; and assignment to a personal mentor in the STEM professions. Once enrolled in the organization, each young scholar and his/her family becomes part of the YMWIC family. They make a commitment to stay in the program until high school graduation, to participate fully in program activities and maintain a high grade point average. While in college, thanks to the commitment of our corporate partners, each scholar who maintains the Foundation's academic requirements and standards will be eligible to receive scholarship support and participate in internships that will prepare them for STEM careers. YMWIC offers four academic scholar groups for students in grades five through twelve. The scholar groups are aligned with the Foundation’s mission. Group activities aim to bridge the gap between academic study and real life, by providing opportunities, projects, and challenges that simulate real life activities. Upon acceptance into the program students will be placed into one of the four grade appropriate scholar groups:
