Opening doors to lifelong STEM careers

We’re Lumity, a STEM nonprofit building a future where STEM education is more equitable, accessible, and uplifting for Chicago’s under-resourced students. Build it with us.

We change the STEM status quo

Opportunities in STEM are growing — but racial, socioeconomic, and gender equity in STEM education has fallen behind. Lumity levels the playing field. We eliminate barriers to tech careers with STEM Career Prep (our four-year program), STEMWorks (our career training program), and more. Learn about our STEM nonprofit work.

New things happening! Lumity launches a new project—a Training Center in Maywood. Read about this exciting new venture.
