Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Eureka Enrichment Services reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Staffing

  • Administrative Capacity


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

Eureka, like most after school providers, suffered enormous losses. We had a 50% reduction to our programmatic income (an approximate loss of $10,000) in addition to a 50% loss of funding from sponsors (an approximate loss of $18,000+). Team registration went from 57 teams in 2021 to a dismal 19 teams in 2021. In addition, 5 of our 6 AmeriCorps VISTA members which are assigned to grow FIRST® in Puerto Rico took a leave of absence in 2020. Despite these overwhelming challenges and with a staff of 3, Eureka championed for learning and forged through the COVID-19 season to hold a small 2021 Remote Championship for those brave students and teachers who came forward to insist on learning.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Schools in Puerto Rico remained closed throughout the entire 2020-2021 academic school year. All learning on the island was remote. This presented enormous challenges to educators who were overburdened with the demands of remote learning. The entire after school and enrichment industry in Puerto Rico took a hit. We had a 72% decline in National Spelling Bee school registrations and a 67% decline in FIRST Robotics team registrations. In addition, all summer workshops and professional development were cancelled in 2020 and 2021.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

Because much of our work is in technology, we were able to transition with ease into remote work. Our staff was also already well versed in collaborative projects and sharing files via Dropbox and Share Point. We moved in person meetings to Teams, Ring Center, and/or Google Live Meets. In addition, we maintained daily communication and collaboration to ensure that our projects continued to flow. We were fortunate to have closed out the Championship season in March of 2020 which allowed us to dedicate the spring and summer months to plan for a remote season. In these planning months we converted new season material into Spanish and into interactive learning systems – recognizing that our teachers would be overwhelmed with existing pressures of working remotely and would appreciate this work. While the season suffered a great loss in registration, we put in permanent practices that allow us now to transition seamlessly from remote to in person work environments.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

Using resources from our national affiliates, we developed authentic Spanish language material for teachers during the COVID season and converted it into an interactive curriculum on two different Learning Management Systems. This experience gave birth to a powerful resource that we will continue to develop. Consolidating resources from FIRST into an interactive platform, in Spanish, proved to be a very effective and much appreciated product for teachers. We also found that providing virtual events made our programs more accessible to students and schools who face economic hardships. We now offer the option for onsite or virtual participation to our popular events such as: Symposiums, Teacher Training, Team Support, and Kick Off. We also have robust programs to support Virtual Championships should schools shut down again. We have learned to be creative, adaptable, and advocates for education in the face of hurricanes, earthquakes, and pandemics.

What are this organization’s external mobilizaton efforts?

Eureka is built around a powerful collaborative ecosystem of volunteers, sponsors, educators, parents, & AmeriCorps VISTAS. We are constantly expanding our local alliance of collaborators and industry leaders who are dedicated to growing access to STEM education in Puerto Rico. This network is what enables the program to grow and reach the most vulnerable communities in our area. Therefore, we focus on creating volunteer opportunities to engage the private sector and connect students with real world professionals. We also develop relationships with stakeholders by inviting strategic speakers to student symposiums & other events. Furthermore, we support positive outcomes through the sustainable structures put in place: professional development, STEM training, & season support. Finally, we engage in strategic partnerships with local universities. They support our K-12 STEM mission and allow us to introduce students to college campuses, showing them that higher education is within reach.

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


COVID required that we shift our operations to a virtual setting. In addition, we responded to the need to provide authentic Spanish language material to teachers during the COVID season. This prompted us to create interactive curriculum on two different Learning Management Systems. This experience gave birth to a powerful resource that we will continue to curate in the years to come. Consolidating all of the rich resources from FIRST into manageable interactive parts has been received with extraordinary excitement and gratitude from our mentors and teachers who now find it seamless and stress free to prepare for each team meeting. We also found that providing virtual events allowed for the greater participation of schools from more remote communities who struggle to secure access/transportation to events in the metro area. We now offer schools option for onsite or virtual access to our popular events such as: Panel Expert Symposiums, Teacher Training, Team Support, Kick Off, and even some Tournaments. The national office created a dynamic Virtual Tournament Structure which we implemented when schools were closed during the pandemic last year. We have since found that this is a terrific opportunity for communities that face challenges, for students with handicaps, and for teams from remote regions who can’t afford bus transportation to our events.
