CLACE-Centro Latino Americano para las Artes, Ciencia y Educación cover
Mission Our Mission:

We seek to encourage diverse youth to live, learn, love and embrace arts and science as an everyday experience! Our work empowers each student to become a steward of our planet while making sure that they empathetically contemplate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) as inspiring and fulfilling professional career paths!

Why CLACE:

Hispanics are the fastest growing and youngest group in the United States. It is estimated that it will comprise 30 percent of the U.S. population by 2040 and that it will be the majority group in the US. Sadly, Hispanic students are underrepresented in STEM fields and deserve equal access to STEM fields.

It is important that we increase the number of Hispanic students completing degrees in STEM and make sure that our youth has a strong presence in the STEM future of our nation.
