The Wilmington based nonprofit uses a hands on approach to combine science, photography, engineering and culinary art, to expose students to career opportunities they otherwise may not have considered. 

Since its start in 2013, 4youth Productions has grown tremendously, from just 40 students in one school to more than 230 students across five locations. Earlier this month 4youth helped bring Gravity, the first STEAM festival of its kind, to Wilmington.

“We were able to show over 150 inner-city kids what it’s like to be an artist and scientist for the day,” said Nick Martin, a chemical engineer and 4youth board member. “Students rotated between a variety of activities and experiments to get them thinking about potential longterm career paths in science, technology, engineering, art and science.”

Students get acquainted with a wide variety of the artistic professions and crafts associated with advertising, introducing them to career options they otherwise might not have even considered.
Students who participate in Science4youth have the opportunity to explore various advanced scientific fields. Science4youth uses a hands-on approach to conduct scientific experiments in class to teach biology, physics, chemistry, earth science, neuroscience and food science.

The Cooking4youth culinary arts program is focused on low cost, nutritious and easy to prepare recipes. Once a month parents or guardians are invited for a “Cooking Together” class to promote preparing and eating meals as a family. Students have the opportunity to prepare over 50 recipes that include cuisines from around the world introducing them to new tastes and cultures. They educate their students in nutrition, mathematics, following directions and self-sufficiency.

Just last month, 4youth announced the opening of a new headquarters on Superfine Lane in Wilmington. An addition 4youth President Raphael Dahan says will enable the group to explore new projects and teach more children.
