LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Thank you to our STEM partners:
#iChooseLife partners with organizations such as Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI) and The Electrical Workers Minority Caucus (EWMC) to give our Youth Leaders the opportunity to engage in hands on, practical applications of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are expected to grow by 8.9 percent in the next decade, whereas non-STEM occupations are projected to grow by a mere 6.4 percent. In addition, STEM degree holders can expect to earn wages 12 percent higher than those of non-STEM degree holders, regardless of whether they work in STEM or non-STEM occupations. We believe that exposing our Youth Leaders to STEM is important because we want to afford them every opportunity for a successful future. We want to give our Youth Leaders the resources they need to become the next generation of innovators.
