Don’t let the name fool you. UYRS is about more than fast cars. Founded in 1998, the nonprofit offers science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education to traditionally underserved youth ages 8 to 18. It has grown from a single program using go-kart rides as rewards for good grades in its STEM-heavy classes to one offering multiple curricula, mentoring and, in many cases, opportunities: to win scholarships, to find a passion, and to prepare for the future.
The program was also featured on the new Localist network via the local ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.
