About Us

BranchOut! is an award winning program created by Veritas Education Leaders, a 501 (c)(3) organization based in the Washington DC area.

BranchOut! is organized and guided by volunteer education experts and professionals. It is driven, led, and managed by student leaders with the goal to share STEAM knowledge across communities while promoting civic engagement and cross-cultural understanding. 


As an award-winning community engagement program, we have received endorsement from US Congress, including Senator Tim Kaine and former Congresswoman Barbara Comstock. Both of them manage to grant U.S. Congressional Certificates to students of BranchOut!. In 2018, BranchOut! became an official organization to issue the U.S. Presidential Service Award. Our innovator program won the US Congressional App Challenge award in 2020.

Resources for Kids!

Because so many kids are stuck at home for the time being, we made several videos to keep them entertained, as well as for them to continue learning and discovering new things. We have videos about famous scientists, fun activities to do at home, and more!
