AN ACT to amend the tax law in relation to creating  an  urban  science,
  technology, engineering and math (U-STEM) mentor volunteer program for
  youth  and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration
  thereof

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  This  act  shall  be known and may be cited as the "urban
science, technology, engineering  and  math  (U-STEM)  mentor  volunteer
program for youth act".
  S  2.  Legislative  findings  and intent. The legislature hereby finds
that there is a need to develop, promote and facilitate a mentor  volun-
teer  program  specifically  designed  to foster greater student partic-
ipation for pupils living in high concentrations  of  poverty  in  large
urban  areas  who are in grades seven to twelve in the study of science,
technology, engineering and  mathematics  herein  referred  to  as  STEM
programs. The legislature further finds that the STEM programmatic areas
are  under-served  and  under-represented by pupils living in poverty in
the large urban school districts of the state due in part to the  finan-
cial  circumstances  of  the  school  districts as well as the competing
programmatic requirements for high school graduation.
  Furthermore, the legislature finds that STEM businesses in  the  large
urban  areas  are  in  need  of greater numbers of qualified students to
pursue careers in the STEM fields and that there is a state interest  in
fostering  a  programmatic connection between these businesses and their
school districts to mentor, develop and  train  students  interested  in
STEM careers.
  Therefore  be  it  resolved  that  the  legislature  creates the urban
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (U-STEM) mentor  volun-
teer program for pupils in the large city school districts of the state.
