Mentoring

The 100 is gearing up to mentor and train students to be leaders in the industry. It’s difficult to predict trends in the labor market, however, demand for Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) workers will continue to increase into the future. To date there is a limited number of STEM programs for at risk youth. Hispanic and Blacks account for only 6% of the STEM workforce, but 14 and 11 percent of the overall employment. In August of 2017, Purdue University will open Purdue Polytechnic Indianapolis High School. This school is designed to bridge the gap between inner-city youth and the STEM field.

Our Robotics Program is in partnership with IPS 43 students in the 4th – 8th grades. In this 12-15 week program, students meet weekly with mentors from Salesforce, Lilly Co., Delphi Automotive, Cummins Inc, and Rolls Royce. These leaders will provide insight into the mechanics of assembling robots, mentoring, and hands-on training of students to one day compete against their peers in local competitions.
