Toyota USA Foundation contributes $100,000 to Hispanic Chamber’s Core4 STEM Expo

On Monday, April 22, 2013 Congressman Joaquín Castro joined business leaders, the Hispanic Chamber and Toyota USA Foundation for a press conference at the Historic Pearl Brewery to announce Toyota’s commitment to creating brighter futures for San Antonio’s youth through their financial support of The Hispanic Chamber’s annual CORE4 STEM Expo.  The $100,000 grant awarded to the Hispanic Chamber will directly impact youth in San Antonio.

Every year, the Hispanic Chamber’s CORE4 STEM expo brings together more than 2,500 middle school students from five inner-city school districts to experience ways they can enhance their educational attainment through STEM.  This program is aimed to inspire San Antonio youth to explore future career interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce invests in our youth and enhances the students’ experience in STEM by hosting the CORE4 STEM Expo, because many of them will become San Antonio’s future workforce and will, one day, determine economic success.

This year, the 4th Annual CORE4 STEM Expo is set to occur on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 and Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Freeman Expo Hall. For more details, contact Brianna Dimas at or (210)208-8226.
