IWMF students had the opportunity to visit Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral for a up-close look at NASA’s space program. Accompanied by staff and volunteers, youth discovered the past, present and future of space exploration through a hands-on tour. This memorable and fun experience will inspire the next generation of pioneers to reach for the stars.

This month we are highlighting four of our outstanding past and present IWMF members. Being a part of the IWMF program allows for our youth to join something so much bigger then just an after school program; they join a community of encouraging people all wanting them to succeed at anything they put their mind to. One of the goals of the IWMF is to not only help youth graduate high school but to also empower students to obtain their dreams with post-secondary education.
