Be a part of the Central Park STEAM Community!

Project based learning can't happen without volunteers to help the teachers implement hands-on learning exercises.


Volunteers with experience using technology, programming, sewing, cooking, making, etc are all key elements in the Central Park STEAM philosophy that our staff need assistance with. While we embrace a new educational model, we need help from every member of the community to implement it. 


Pickup a volunteer form at the office or print from the web site and submit it to become a part of the Central Park STEAM Volunteer Team!

Organizations and Committees

Project Cornerstone

Project Cornerstone


We are excited about all we will learn together as we go through the Project Cornerstone ABC Lessons this year!

Project Cornerstone is committed to helping all children in Silicon Valley feel valued, respected and known.  Its programs and services help individuals and communities build a web of support around young people so that they grow into healthy, caring, and responsible adults.  To read more, visit their web site at www.projectcornerstone.org.

The theme for the 2016-17 school year is Inclusion for Everyone: Including You.  Classroom discussions and activities will enable students to practice and internalize these tools:

  • Build relationships by bucket filling, not dipping, and using a lid.
  • Use friendship boosters to build respect and acceptance for others.
  • Role model responsible ways to behave while online.
  • Learn empathy by identifying, naming, and understanding feelings.
  • Respect differences, accept others, and celebrate diversity.
  • Follow sparks and set goals to achieve dreams.
  • Get to know people before making judgments.
  • Dare to try new things and discover interests.
