The AMS Learning Center is turning out to be a busy and enjoyable space this summer as AMS hosts 28 young students registered in the S.T.R.E.A.M. program.

S.T.R.E.A.M. is a program that helps students 16 years or older become better youths, which will make then greater adults, by preparing them for a strong future. The students are offered the opportunity to learn basic work ethics and industry identified skillsets while gaining exposure to various companies like Amazon, California Highway Patrol, SoCal Gas, PPG and AMS Fulfillment.

S.T.R.E.A.M. Global Innovations (SGI) in cooperation with Goodwill Industries registers students, ages 16-20, for participation in this summer leadership and career readiness pilot program. (S.T.R.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, Manufacturing.) This summer they have partnered with AMS to make it happen.

There are 28 students who began the program at the AMS Learning Center during the week of July 8th. They are enthusiastic and anxious to participate. The energy and excitement they bring with them during class is infectious!! There are two groups of students taking classes twice a week from 8 am to 12 noon. The classes, which involve a wonder project, are four weeks in length and end the last week of July / first week of August.

Part of their learning is interviewing and work internships. Twenty of the 28 will be working with AMS during their summer break and potentially during their school year. AMS is very pleased to be a part of the S.T.R.E.A.M. and Goodwill effort on behalf of the youth of the Santa Clarita Valley.
