CSA has set up a wonderful resource for the local youth to have a chance of hands on experience in many creative STEM programs. CSA helps students launch their enthusiasm into the real world & the future.


It was wonderful to see the passion of these intelligent young people wanting to get involved in making the world a better place to live and I was delighted to share what I have learned over the years on Council to help them direct their efforts.

David L Bradley, Mayor of RPV

It’s very impressive that our students are coming forward with environmentally sustainable ideas and really leaning forward to speak before the council.
