"Where Science and Technology Come to Play"
The "STEAM Calls" program offers youth from underserved communities the chance to acquire training and practical experience in sports officiating. This is a life long skill that can be transferred to successful long term employment opportunities. Following the principles of integrity, judgment, consistency, respect and hard work students are required to comply with program requirements including school attendance and good behavior, drug testing, community service and tutorials. In return, students are trained and assigned to officiate youth sports games under the supervision and mentoring of an experienced official.
Once program participants become experienced officials, they will have an opportunity to work higher level games and compete for increased wages.
