Who We Are
4-H STEAM Corps is an AmeriCorps*State program hosted by Michigan State University Extension. It places full-time, half-time and quarter-time members in counties across the state to provide science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) programming to local youth. Members plan, implement and evaluate 4-H SPIN clubs and 4-H Tech Wizards mentoring sites. Additionally, they recruit, screen, train, place and support volunteers to serve as SPIN club leaders, 4-H Tech Wizards mentors, event volunteers and guest programmers.
4-H STEAM Corps is a collaboration between national service members and county 4-H programs to reach underserved youth and improve attitudes toward STEAM subjects.
For the 2019-2020 service year, 4-H STEAM Corps has members placed in Arenac, Bay, Calhoun, Eaton, Genesee, Gratiot, Huron, Ingham, Isabella, Kalkaska, Kent, Luce, Marquette, Roscommon, Shiawassee, and Wayne counties.
