Helping rural South Carolina students DIG into STEM
COLUMBIA (WACH) --- Helping to transform lives of young people who live in rural South Carolina.
That’s the purpose of DIG.
DIG stands for Dreams Imagination & Gift Development Program and was founded by USC graduate Steve Brown.
DIG is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is transforming the lives of youth living in rural South Carolina through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) enrichment, Virtual Mentoring, Community Service and Recreation.
DIG is also known for its annual outdoor STEM Festival serving youth in the rural lower central Savannah River area.
DIG’s mission is to instill a belief in youth, children and communities that big dreams can be achieved in small places.
This program is especially beneficial to serving underserved population as it pertains to educational resources and exposure.
Brown stopped by Good Day Columbia to talk about the program.
