Verizon Innovative Learning Program

Tuition-free STEM program

Every young man deserves access to a better future. That’s why we’ve launched the Verizon Innovative Learning program for minority males—a dynamic, three-week summer program for middle school boys, where they’ll learn design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality and social entrepreneurship. The program was developed in partnership with Base 11 and Arizona State University and is expected to impact 2,400 young men this year. Classes are held Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the summer and one Saturday a month throughout the school year. This year's summer program runs June 25 through July 13.
