Chemours Future of Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology School Partnership Program
ChemFEST School Partnership Program
Nurturing the next generation of STEM professionals
Shaping the future of the world through the power of our chemistry requires great innovators and problem solvers from all backgrounds. To ensure we’re helping to find and inspire the next generation of innovators we’re partnering with schools in communities where we operate to provide early access to STEM education. Through ChemFEST, the Chemours Future of Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology School Partnership Program, we’re focusing on providing exposure and experience with STEM to middle school students to build early excitement for the sciences. The program includes financial support and hands-on volunteering and mentoring from Chemours employees who are committed to making a difference. To solve the world’s biggest challenges, we need the best and brightest talent from all populations. Through ChemFEST we’re doing our part to nurture the skills and passion needed by the next generation of STEM professionals to be a part of meeting the demands of an ever-changing world.
Every ChemFEST program represents a multi-year school partnership aimed at creating sustainable programs that make an impact in their communities for years to come. Our goal is to work directly with schools to identify their individual needs and utilize our Chemours resources and technical expertise to help them meet those needs.
