Partnership Opportunities: Securing your Talent Pipeline, Making a Social Impact

Securing your Talent Pipeline: STEAM Achievers scholars want to know:
“What do you REALLY do at your company?”
“How Can I ever Work for a Company like Yours?”

 

A New Approach to Talent Acquisition and Social
Impact

It is almost scary to imagine that current 11th graders will probably be submitting resumes for employment at your company in only 1 year, 5 years, if they go to college, which we trust they will. This idea should not be scary at all if we are doing what we must to inform them and get them excited about what our organization stands for, about our required skill sets, business etiquette, professional presentations, resume preparation and just as important… company culture.

What a Partnership with STEAM Achievers Could do for your Company

To help build a reliable pipeline which is aligned with your company’s Diversity and Inclusion goals, while at the same time making a social impact, it may be worth considering making a mark in scholars by engaging them in strategic, impactful mentorship programs, workshops and where possible, field trips within your organization. Companies are now faced with a new millennial workforce that wants to to do even more to make a meaningful difference in their community. We are happy to help you structure a simplistic but relevant and sustainable engagement program that is not only rewarding for your employees but also gives back to your local community.

 

STEAM or Career-Focused Mentorship

  • These are opportunities that can be aligned with our existing program framework. Mentorship commitment is customized for the busy professional, allowing for sustainable engagement.
  • They could be as simple as a 30-minute mentorship session or interactive presentation once a week or bi-weekly at one of our program locations.

Field Trips

  • Learning experiences through field trips within your organization.
  • STEAM Achievers’ core objective is to get kids and youth excited about science, technology, engineering, art and math. Our goal is to put the dots so close together that they can visualize a career in STEAM. With that in mind, we are intentional about providing scholars with strategic opportunities for exposure into a variety of careers and helping them understand what it would take to become a professional in the field.
  • The opportunity to have STEAM Achievers scholars visit your organization to get a better understanding of real world businesses and operations would be a welcome addition to our programs, and, greatly appreciated.

Workshops

  •  Learning experiences through STEAM-focused or career-focused workshops.
  • STEAM pathways and careers can be wide in their scope. Whether your expertise is in medicine, engineering, human resources, manufacturing, social media platforms, farming, building enterprise data warehouses, banking, designing a fighter jet, baking, or any other, we welcome your partnership in providing hands-on workshops and projects for our scholars in your field.
