S.T.R.E.A.M. Turns 7

by | Nov 3, 2021 | Community

Award Winning 20 year old Social Entrepreneur, Niamani Knight, is the Founder of S.T.R.E.A.M. Global Innovations, alongside the President of the organization, her mother, Nikia Richards. S.T.R.E.A.M. is a leading and youth-founded 501(c)3 nonprofit that connects the dots between education and career opportunities within Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Manufacturing since 2015. The mission is to ensure every student has equal access to education and career opportunities in order to create a world where diversity and access are the norm and not the exception, through innovation, education, and collaboration.
“Sitting in the classroom in October 2014 and after much research, I began to see the growing trend of youth in underserved communities not having access to education and career opportunities. I wanted to help change that,” said Knight.
With like-minded community and corporate partnerships in Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Manufacturing, the organization has successfully served over 30,000 people thus far through interactive exhibitions, industry expert exposure, virtual activations, and peer support in addition to reaching over 100 million globally.
Although the headquarters are based locally in Santa Clarita, the ambitious yet humble 20-year-old Founder, Niamani, and her innovative mother, and President Nikia, have brought this vision of diversity inclusion and access into fruition throughout nations globally during the pandemic.
This holiday season, the organization is celebrating S.T.R.E.A.M. Turns 7 on December 2nd at the Hyatt in Valencia with a special interactive experience and dinner where Niamani is inviting corporate partners, the community, artists and more to come together to make a difference. During the event, each guest is encouraged to bring an unwrapped new toy that will be donated to deserving youth and their communities throughout Los Angeles County.
A gift that keeps on giving even beyond this upcoming special celebratory event, S.T.R.E.A.M. Global Innovations will also partner with California Highway Patrol to wrap and distribute the toys as gifts for families in 4 communities: Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles.
In partnership with the Hyatt Regency, Lockheed Martin, Santa Clarita Magazine and more, S.T.R.E.A.M. Turns 7 is open to the public and ticket registration can be found at the link below.
