About Class Matters

The primary concerns of Class Matters are our mission, our youth, and fulfilling our vision. Class Matters vision is to “Empower Our Future, One Teen at a Time.” Class Matters is dedicated to the academic encouragement, professional, and cultural development of our conference attendees, as well as the development of ethically sensitive and responsible persons. Class Matters aims to develop and refine socially disadvantaged youth’s professional and social skills to endeavor in the promotion of the socially disadvantaged students majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related fields. It also seeks to achieve these goals through sound academic and professional programming and through regulations and policies governing conduct that motivates and encourages independence, maturity and respect for the rights and viewpoints of others.
