West Sound STEM Network members are action-oriented, forward-thinking, transformative organizations who are committed to building PreK-career pathways to postsecondary credentials and family-wage jobs, especially for those who are furthest from education and institutional justice.


They come from business, school districts, education agencies, higher education institutions, Career and Technical Education (CTE) practitioners and providers, government, military, community, Tribes, library systems, nonprofits, out-of-school providers and workforce development agencies on the Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas.  They are collaborators, innovators and leaders.


For more information about joining the Network, contact Executive Director, Dr. Kareen Borders at


“As a business, we are asked frequently to join networks and other associations. From our years of experience please know that we seriously consider West Sound STEM Network to be the preeminent leader in the western U.S., if not the nation. When we receive an invitation to a conversation from West Sound STEM, our response is an automatic yes.”

— Frank Rimkus, CEO, Galaxy Theatres and West Sound STEM Executive Board member
