FORGE at Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center
What is FORGE?
Forging Opportunities Rooted in Growth and Engagement is an out-of-school-time program offered by the local nonprofit North River Commission in collaboration with Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center. FORGE is free to all registered students and their parents/guardians/caregivers. FORGE provides all programming and materials free to its participants. FORGE is funded by the North River Commission (NRC), including a grant from Illinois State Board of Education Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC).
Elizabeth Tellez: Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Site Coordinator
Elizabeth is super excited to be working with the North River Commission. She is the school site coordinator at Von Steuben MSC, where she also graduated from in 2020. Elizabeth grew up in Chicago and is attending Wilbur Wright College, but plans to transfer to ISU to further pursue her psychology degree. Being closer in age to high school students, Elizabeth has a deeper sense of what it means to work alongside students with many different stories and is looking forward to expanding academic excellence at Von with FORGE. Elizabeth loves to read and relax in nature.
