Our Impact / Community

STEM Education

We believe all children and young adults should have the resources and skills to build their best future. We also believe we need to play our part to ensure our communities are ready to transition to jobs in the future economy.

Skills development starts well before people enter the workforce, particularly as cloud technology becomes essential across many industries.

Technology plays a vital role within local businesses—from managing websites and apps, to using collaboration tools and cloud computing—and it has only become clearer in recent years how vital technological skills are to careers in everything from education, to finance, construction, and retail. With a focus on inspiring, educating, and preparing children and young adults to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), we are committed to helping more young people and families from underserved communities gain the resources and skills they need to build their best future.
