“As an alumna of Envision myself, I am excited for Jason to meet, work, and collaborate with other high­
aspiring students from across the country,” said Amanda Freitag Thomas, SVP ai1d GM for Envision. “Hands down, my favorite part of attending ai1 Envision program was being with motivated students in an environment designed to help us challenge our assumptions, meet new people, and grow. Creating that same learning  environment is a central focus for all of our programs. At NYLF: Explore STEM, students build the confidence and skills needed to excel in high school, college, and the workplace. They learn how to adapt to and  communicate in new situations, to new challenges, and with new people, which, given how rapidly the world is changing due to technology and innovation, are essential skills for success.”
