Third Street Community Center

Third Street Community Center in San Jose operates the After-School Academic Program (ASAP) for students in grades 1-6. The after-school program focuses on teaching students about science, technology, and engineering. Over 95% of the program participants are from Hispanic or Latino families.

Third Street has designated the month of February as “Engineering Month.” Each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon in February, SCU students representing all majors volunteer to spend an afternoon at Third Street to introduce young participants to engineering concepts through engaging hands-on activities.
