C2 After School

C2 Pipeline continues to provide afterschool programming in 24 high school sites in the Metro-Detroit area. Our focus is to help students become ready for college and career aspirations, with a concentration on STEM. Each of our sites run at least 2.5 hours of programming, daily Monday - Thursday. Some of our sites are hosting in-person programs, while some are still virtual. Students will be able to enroll for the career pathways that interest them the most: Health and Human Services, Science, Business and Engineering Technology. All enrichments are hands-on and project based, making it not only educational, but fun as well. Check out our Centers to see if you or your student is eligible for this program. To become part of our C2 team, simply find your school's registration tile and complete the online registration. All applications can be found by following this link: www.waynestate.inforeadyscale.com/hub.

June 21 - August 5, 2021

The STEM Challenge is an interactive virtual competition that lasts 6 weeks throughout the summer. High school students will work in teams to create a viable solution to one of the three topics listed below. Teams will be given their own mentor, access to weekly workshops with industry and academic professionals, and virtual platform in which to be creative. Students will submit their projects at the end of the six weeks though a video submission, and an informal research paper.

Social Emotional Theme: Service & Citizenship

For the month of April, the C2 Pipeline SEL Committee chose the theme "Service & Citizenship" for our Social and Emotional Learning activities. Students will engage in activities that focus on community service projects. As a collective group, we will be assisting serval organizations, including the VA, animal shelters, habitat for humanity and more. We hope that through these lessons and activities, we will be able to help students recognize the importance of giving back!
