San Bernadino Valley College

At Iyai+, we are honored to partner with San Bernardino Valley College and a host of distinguished national, State, local, and regional Infrastructure Sector organizations to bring our unique, Infrastructure Careers Awareness programming to the Inland Empire/southern California region. This Program primarily focuses on the Transport, and Energy sectors -- while highlighting particularly relevant aspects of the technology, communications, and critical manufacturing sectors.

At the core of the founding of Iyai+ is our partnership with the TransSTEM academy at the Francis L. Cardozo High School Education Campus (Washington, DC). TransSTEM was founded at Cardozo in 1991 with the overarching goals of establishing an academy that would open the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math---with access to advanced schooling and good paying jobs---to those children who had traditionally been unable to take advantage of such studies; creating a model for replication elsewhere in the nation; and, developing curriculum in conjunction with national certification requirements. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has been a long-time TransSTEM Academy Partner and funder.
