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.
