About Lumity

About Lumity

Lumity provides teens and young adults from under-resourced communities with transformational experiences to prepare them for lifelong STEM careers. Our STEM education program, partnerships, talks, and activities break down barriers between under-resourced Chicago communities and businesses.

Learn the history behind our programs

Lumity has served the community in many different capacities — we’ve been a community technology service, a nonprofit finance organization, and more. But the real magic began when we started our two-year training program in 2013. When our first class of students achieved high employment rates, we recognized the power of a long-term STEM education in under-resourced communities, and our STEM programs for teens and young adults were born.
