One of Scale AI’s strategic objectives is to establish an ecosystem that positions Canada as one of the world leaders in artificial intelligence (AI). That demands a skilled workforce with advanced AI and digital intelligence knowledge.
In order to maintain our position, it is crucial that we return to the source — that is, youth from all backgrounds — and raise awareness of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) perspectives amongst this workforce of the future.
To do this, Scale AI is investing up to $1 million by March 31, 2023 in a youth awareness program. The program aims to educate 12,000 young people about digital intelligence and various existing STEM programs through school and extracurricular activities.
The STEM youth awareness program goes hand in hand with Scale AI’s mission. The goal of the program is to generate interest and encourage youths to pursue university studies in one of the STEM programs. Not only will this help to enrich the Scale AI ecosystem, but it ensures the traction and retention of a diverse workforce in Canada.
Join us on November 17, 2020 for the virtual launch of this new program.
Designed for organizations that currently offer STEM programs for youths, the launch webinar will explain the certification process so that your organization might benefit from the available funding. We’ll also cover the structure of the program, how to apply, and the amount of funding available.
