Discover innovative and exciting opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively. We believe that STEM skills are essential for the future of Search and Rescue and Emergency Management and our young people are the ones who will integrate new innovation as best practice.
Being involved in YSAR has opened so many doors for me. It helped me develop the confidence, discipline, strength and character that enables me to reach my goals. YSAR only built and strengthened my love for the outdoors and through the training and knowledge I have received through the programme, I am able to give it the respect it deserves. I have been pushed to my limits mentally physically and emotionally and have had the time of my life. I’ve achieve things I never imagined I could accomplish and the people you do it with are friends for a lifetime, I cannot recommend it to enough people.Laura Geraerts
