Intersect STEM

“Intersect STEM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on “Stem without borders.” Our mission is to empower international and refugee students through STEM education, ensuring their integration into the U.S. educational system and local communities.

Global Cleveland has been integral to our success as a student-run non-profit organization. Early into our programs, we reached out, and Evan Chwalek (the workforce manager at Global Cleveland) offered to connect us with local partners, share their organization’s resources, provide technical assistance in interacting with Refugee communities, and otherwise support our efforts.”
