Our Day of Engineering program partners a primary or secondary school with a local business in a one-day format. Teams of employee volunteers are identified, prepped with a presentation and sent on a visit to a local school on a predetermined date. In addition to serving as STEM role models, volunteers engage students in discussion and a variety STEM activities.
This program benefits both schools and STEM employers. Schools are provided with a local STEM professional and resource.
Employers benefit by allowing their employees to take part in philanthropy. Research shows that a majority of millennials say their decision to accept a job was influenced by an employer's philanthropic or service-based initiatives, according to a report from Achieve and the Case Foundation. Millennials want to give back to their community. Participating in STEM Forward's Day of Engineering program creates a satisfying workplace for your employees.
