LETS GO=LEADERSHIP, ENGINEERING, TECHNOLOGY, SCIENCE
LETS GO is thrilled to share our 2023 Annual Report. It's been a wonderful year of change and growth. We are thankful to the students, teachers, families, funders, partners, and our team, for making dreams a reality. As we enter 2024, we are excited to expand our mission and continue providing STEM and workforce development opportunities to our community.
"Students were so engaged they asked, “Can we come back for another week.”
-Anne Arundel County Middle School STEM Magnate Summer Camp student
"Our staff and students love LETS GO. I appreciate the level of commitment that LETS GO offers us as partners. We see that they care about our experience and that they enjoy interacting with the students and the staff and not just supplying the materials and curriculum.”
-Calcy Joyner, Wolfe Street Academy, Afterschool Program Director
America as a country is aware of disparities in quality and scope of education among communities and school systems throughout the nation. Government funding for education is limited, especially in low-income communities, and is often not sufficient to provide all students all the learning resources they need. The solution is for nonprofits, churches, and private individuals to contribute to the education of students in their communities. Each contributor donates what they are able in the way that they are able. Nonprofits are able to supplement in-school education with out-of-school learning experiences that enhance students’ understanding of in-school subject and academic performance.
Here at LETS GO Boys and Girls, Inc., we are driven to do our part in making the world a better place. Since 2009, we have taken part in a wide range of activities that empower youth and instructors in STEM learning in their communities. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
Create economic success for underserved and marginalized communities through STEM education and workforce development.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Technology--also known as STEM--drive our economy in this information age. LETS GO recognizes the importance of engaging students early and continuously. With endless real-world applications, informal STEM learning expereinces help students engage in project-based learning in a team environment, develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills and practice risk taking and perseverance while learning.
Our Workforce Development Program fosters meaningful social-emotional learning and 21st-century workforce skill development—critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, technology literacy, flexibility, leadership, initiative, persistence, productivity, and social skills--to prepare youth for STEM careers.

How We Work
Evaluating our Success
LETS GO uses the Result-Based Accountability (RBA) method of measuring its success at meeting its goals.
We use the three RBA questions to determine if we are meeting our goals and impacting the communities we serve.
How much did we do?
How well did we do it?
Is anyone better off?
LETS GO partners with PEAR, Inc. to develop and maintain meaningful performance measures and metrics.
