STEM & Robotic Exploration
Summer Program 2021
Educating for the 21st Century & Beyond!
We believe that early and consistent exposure to the STEM and robotics fields will better equip youth and teens for the competitive workforce. There are over 4 million STEM and IT jobs in the U.S. and not enough qualified people to fill these jobs. The U.S is demanding that we develop and prepare a competitive workforce for these lucrative fields.
Through our support services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the communities we serve. Youth also learn robotics and engineering via NC FIRST competitions. CAD & 3-D printing and coding is also implemented.
This is one of our key areas of focus here at the Nehemiah Community Empowerment Center.

Our mandate is to expose women in under-served communities access to I.T. training. This includes hands-on internships with area businesses to gain work experience. We are working to eliminate barriers such as child care and transportation that hinder women from pursuing a career.

Tackling the Issue - Many teens ages 16-19 and adults 20 & up lack the certification, technical ability, and work experience needed to become gainfully employed. Or you may be a displace worker, unemployed or seeking to pursue a career in I.T. This is a great place to start to attain the foundational skill set needed to pursue your career in I.T. Participants can enroll in one of the following pre-apprenticeship training modules:
- I.T./Computer Support Specialist
- Lawncare Tech
We have partnered with ApprenticeshipNC, GuilfordWorks, and local businesses and corporations to provide the much-needed training, certifications and hands-on OJT experience required. Through this initiative, we are creating jobs, a more diverse workforce and developing productive citizens in society.
