Football Field at Palo Alto High School

A family-friendly event designed to benefit underserved Bay Area children. WWFC makes fitness fun with sports drills, and a chance to meet Stanford and professional athletes. Enjoy arts & crafts, photo-opps with athletes and mascots, fitness activities for all ages—and more!

The Corporate Experiences program provides virtual “field trips” for high school students to teach them about entry level roles in STEM fields. Students get a behind-the-scenes tour of STEM corporations that are making a difference in their communities and the chance to meet relatable employees in a variety of entry level roles.
