Building Partnerships. Creating Futures.

UIC Engineering Students Mentor Austin Youth

UIC Engineering Students Mentor Austin Youth

Manufacturing Connect is partnering with UIC with a site-based STEM-Business Mentoring Program, providing 1-on-1 meetings with students and caring adult mentors who meet once or twice a month for an hour, over the period of a year. Mentors transparently share their life experiences as a means of helping students navigate the world and plan their future. A partnership with Junior Achievement provides for soft skills sessions, establishing several trainings to empower our youth who have been fortunate to secure mentoring partnerships with UIC’s  National Society of Black Engineers, the UIC- Caterpillar Aurora (Engineering/ focused Site-based Program at Caterpillar), Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Business Focus Site-based Program at the Federal Reserve) and Austin Multiplex (a variety of Community members mentor at Austin Multiplex).
