ListoAmerica is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit offering innovative learning spaces where members tinker, learn, and build projects of their own interest with a focus on the creative use of technology. In particular, we focus in providing access and opportunities to youth who come from underrepresented groups in STEM such as females, LatinX, and African Americans.
Our remote programming is available through our Discord server where we offers members, mentors, and alumni resources and activities remotely. This is also the place where you can become a ListoAmerica Digital Member if you live far away from our center. Message us for an invitation link!

Our curiosity-focused learning space expands the creative learning model pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Media Lab). Unlike traditional schooling, our model focuses on creative learning, not teaching. Many models of education are outdated and often focus on "teaching to the test". Our 4P model allows members to be self-directed learners on projects that interest them.
OUR 4P LEARNING MODEL
Many activities are lead by energetic STEM ready mentors who work with alongside youth. Mentors facilitate activities, lead workshops, and motivate youth to build grit so they can do their best work at any skill level. Mentors are role models that build lasting relationships with our youth. If you would like to be a mentor we would love to hear from you! Learn More
