WHAT CAN I DO TO SUPPORT
Jobs in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM for short) are projected to increase a staggering 20%+ in the next few years. That’s more than double the rate of growth projected for jobs overall. In the US, only 16% of 12th graders are proficient in math and interested in pursuing STEM careers. It’s clear that we as a nation are not adequately prepared to meet this demand. Producing a strong STEM workforce is crucial to America’s global competitiveness. Growing
our STEM workforce encourages companies to fill positions locally, keeping money on American soil. Additionally, people in STEM careers earn more than their non-STEM peers and experience lower unemployment. This month at CharitySub, we are partnering with three wonderful organizations who each support STEM education in a unique way. With your selection this month, you can help kids learn about math, introduce teens to programming, or help educators develop STEM teaching skills.
