EMSP envisions an East Multnomah County community where children, youth, and adults have equitable access to and are engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) learning that results in a skilled workforce and increased economic opportunity.

Why should you get involved?
EMSP can serve your students in the following ways:

  • Incorporate inquiry-based, career-connected STEAM learning into your teaching practice.
  • Learn where and how to direct your students toward high-wage, high-demand careers in our region.
  • Gain valuable skills, knowledge, and community through targeted STEAM professional development.
  • Connect with community organizations, industry partners, and other educators to expand what you can offer your students.
  • Support students who are historically underrepresented in STEAM fields to thrive in school and the economy.

EMSP needs your help and would like to invite you to become a part of our partnership by filling out the form below. EMSP convenes leaders from community organizations, local businesses, and organizations like yours to work towards an East Multnomah County where all people, particularly underserved communities, have equitable access to and are engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM). We strengthen our partnership by welcoming members from a wide range of industries and sectors to build stronger relationships, share resources, and better integrate our community serving systems.

The above Partner Commitment Form survey will input you as a partner in our dynamic map system. If you want to update your directory and map entry AND your organization has already completed a Partner Commitment Form in 2020, please reach out to EMSP at for a link to your personalized form, instead of creating a new one.
