BioScience & Technology
"The BioSTEM Program really helped me realize I wanted to pursue a career in STEM. The wet lab and classroom experience helped me see exactly how I could make a real difference in the world around me."
"I was looking for a career in IT and I found out about the STEPS Program. I'm glad I considered it because STEPS helped me get the training I needed to move forward. I can now say that I'm Security+ Certified and STEPS helped open more doors for me."
Out of School Youth-II
Mr. E. Alogovi was a participant of FWCA's
Out-of-School Youth II Program. Upon successful completion of work readiness training, he began a work experience/internship with our IT partner, 3rd Asset, LLC. He was offered and accepted a position with KPMG in downtown St. Louis. Interestingly, Mr. Alogovi is now employed in the IT Department of the same building that he used to clean as a housekeeping contractor two years ago!
“Working with [the] leadership team has been an excellent experience for our company!! Assisting us with evaluating performance outcomes, but also being creative and innovative in our process designs, moving beyond customer and funder expectations has been a major asset to FWCA!”
