Be an ASSET to Education.

ASSET relies on volunteers of various abilities to improve science, technology, engineering and math education.

Materials Support Center: ASSET provides hands-on STEM materials to classrooms and educational programs. Volunteers help keep learning materials affordable by refurbishing them for future use (e.g., cleaning, packing, counting and sorting). Each volunteer experience is custom-tailored to individual or group needs and abilities. Participants must be at least 18 years old to volunteer in our warehouse setting.


2,721 volunteers donated more than 9,600 hours in ASSET's Materials Support Center in 2015.

Programs: ASSET offers opportunities for community volunteers to support our programs through internships and special projects. We also facilitate connections between business professionals and schools to promote real-life applications of classroom learning.
