Invest in your future STEM leaders.
By 2020, TAF plans to educate over 15,000 students across Washington State.
Success through STEM focused project based learning.
TAF Academy has a 95% on-time graduation rate.
We're transforming the minds of students.
One public school at a time.

Every student.

Every student deserves access to a high-quality public education, regardless of race, neighborhood or income.

 

That’s why TAF (Technology Access Foundation) has worked to improve access to STEM and technology fields for students of color and underrepresented communities for the past twenty years.

 

Our work has spanned from running after-school programs, opening our own school, partnering with school districts and training education professionals to utilize our STEMbyTAF academic model. Through our efforts, we know that all students are capable of success – with the right support and resources.

 

Right now, there is a huge deficit of qualified candidates to fill Washington State’s STEM and tech jobs. Of the professionals that are in the industry, only a slim margin are of color.

 

At TAF, we’re educating an untapped pipeline of future STEM and technology leaders. Our students are working to solve real-world problems now. We know that they are capable of leading the world, and we’re committed to making it happen.
