Victor Cruz started the Victor Cruz Foundation back in 2012. After taking a very slow approach to make sure he created a charitable foundation that would have a valuable impact, Victor knew exactly what direction to go into after a visit to the White House Science Fair. There he toured the showcase of science projects with President Obama and fell in love with the idea and the importance of the study of S.T.E.M education.
In 2013 the Victor Cruz Foundation partnered with Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds and the Boys and Girls Club of America to help implement the first ever S.T.E.M curriculum through DIY STEM. The Victor Cruz foundation is committed to continued research and partnerships with educators and S.T.E.M programs to help encourage and impact today's youth.
The Victor Cruz Foundation is driven to impacting youth in an array of fields, but specifically towards the introduction and implementation of S.T.E.M learning through the creation of hands on, reader-friendly and impactful curriculum.
Our goal is to increase the number of underrepresented kids interest in career fields related to S.T.E.M while simultaneously helping build and reinforce some of the basic core school subjects.
