ABOUT US

 Don't Be Scared was created by Dr. Ryan Johnson to encourage minority students to pursue and stay in STEM through their entire academic careers.  Diversifying our STEM field in America will be needed to elevate our future generations success. Discrimination and exclusion has created a negative stigma around STEM fields and subjects in underrepresented communities. Furthermore, we want to educate the benefits that are associated with STEM fields such as scholarships, paid graduate school, and a variety of career options. We are here to help and encourage more students to pursue STEM degrees. 

Mission Statement 

To provide an educational and interactive programming that facilitates an inclusive environment for our brave scholars in underrepresented communities.

Vision Statement 

To create the next generation of STEM scholars who can authentically be themselves in any environment.
