This summer, Solana Beach resident Jason Swain will join outstanding elementary school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM in Los Angeles.

NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.Jason was nominated to attend the forum by his fourth grade teacher at Skyline Elementary School.

Jason is passionate about sports, he plays baseball, flag football and basketball at the Solana Beach local teams. Jason’s passion is to become an architect one day. He looks forward to gaining hands-on designing experience through the STEM learning program activities.

“NYLF Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the chief academic officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”

Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
