Celebrating 10 Years of Providing Science Education to Youth
Sierra Nevada Journeys is celebrating its 10th anniversary and 100,000th child served. It’s so rewarding to interact with past program participants who are now graduating from high school and attending college who say, “I remember Sierra Nevada Journeys when I was in elementary school and it was such an incredible experience.”
Through your generosity, you help bring the exciting world of STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — to elementary students regardless of their socio-economic status. You help spark their curiosity and creativity and essentially open the door to new experiences and paths for them to travel as they think about what they want to be when they grow up. A scientist? A researcher? A doctor? An engineer? Those and more are all options because children can see the possibilities.
I’m deeply grateful for your commitment to enriching the lives of our children. There are more youth to reach, and only with your ongoing support can we continue to expand our impact.
As we reflect on the past and look ahead to the next 10 years, I’d like to ask you to consider making a gift to our 10th Anniversary Giving Circle. Your gift will be put to use right away to support programs delivered to children during the 2017-2018 school year. Donors whose gifts arrive by September 18 will be recognized at our anniversary event, SNJ ScienceFest, on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 4-6 p.m., at Bartley Ranch in Reno, Nev.
