STEM Youth Awareness Program

Raising awareness of science, technology, engineering and mathematics career opportunities among tomorrow’s workforce

One of Scale AI’s strategic objectives is to establish an ecosystem that positions Canada as one of the world leaders in AI. That demands a skilled workforce with advanced AI and digital intelligence knowledge.

To help meet the demand, Scale AI is investing up to $1 million in a Youth Awareness Program. The program aims to educate 12,000 young people by March 2023 about digital intelligence and various existing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs through school and extracurricular activities.

Our goal 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.
