We are seeking young and innovative minds that can help shape the future. Hence, we always encourage students from all ethnicities and backgrounds to apply for our commission and help us make a difference in our societies. The youth mind is incredibly creative in so many ways, and should not go unnoticed. As a commission we are excited to serve as a platform for the youth voice in the STEM field, and aid a city/countywide effort to assist youth in their pursuit in finding the right career path in the STEM field. To have your voice be heard and to be part of this wonderful opportunity, go to the “Join” page and apply to be a Youth STEM Commissioner.
We have 9 commissioners on our board, each representing a region of Los Angeles. Schools from all over Los Angeles can make a club at their school with the guidelines provided on the “Start a Club” page. Depending on which region your school lies in, our website will direct the leader of your school’s club to the Commissioner of that region for guidance under the “Contact” page. To inspire healthy competition, the LAYSC can hold our own Demo Day at Los Angeles’ City Hall; there, the top projects created by LAYSC’s clubs will be presented to the rest of the commission. All clubs may submit their projects proposals to us for advice.
