iPraxis is a Philadelphia-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization where we create opportunities for low-income students by increasing their interest and exposure to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines through inquiry and project based learning. We do this by bringing individuals with a STEM background (students, professionals, retirees, professors, and more) into these schools to mentor students on science fair projects, lead after-school clubs, give presentations, and simply make science fun and meaningful.

If you have a busy schedule and are unsure if you have the time, please note that there are many different ways to get involved with iPraxis, each with varying levels of commitment. So if you have any interest in volunteering and making a difference in the lives of Philadelphia’s youth, please contact Lonnie Affrime, Volunteer Director, at or 856-669-7937. We look forward to working with you and changing the face of science!
