Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our goal is to decrease the education inequity in at-risk and underserved communities in Guildford County. We address the lack of consistent exposure to the STEM and robotics fields. We believe that early and consistent exposure to these fields is key to our younger generation. Which, in turn, will enable them to compete in the job market when seeking jobs in these fields.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

There are over 4 million STEM, robotics and IT jobs available in the U.S. and not enough qualified individuals to fill these jobs.

Nehemiah is aiming to accomplish and implement a STEM Academy where underserved youth, teens and young adults can gain the necessary skill set to pursue careers in:

Science
Technology
Engineering
Math
PC Technician
Robotic Engineering
.... AND SO MUCH MORE !!!

We believe that early and consistent exposure is key to create awareness, diversity and help expose and develop our future engineers, scientists, technicians, etc.

Aligning with local area non-profits, schools and businesses.

Our goal is to provide workforce development training, PC Tech, A+ Certifications, lawn and building maintenance internships which will also give our participants the hands-on experience needed to succeed.

We have recently partnered with City of Greensboro's Police Dept as their workforce development provider for young offenders ages 13-17 that go through the court system. This strategy is to help reduce gun violence by providing preventative measures to keep youth off the streets and engaged in positive activities.

Our organization has a training facility to provide PC training and robotic exploration for over 50 youth.

We also have acquired lawn and building contracts with area businesses to provide internships for students.

Executive Director has a degree in Computer Science. She is A+, Net+, MCSA & MCSE certified.

Nehemiah is an Academy Partner with COMPTia. National certification leader in the computer industry. Also, partner with NC FIRST to help implement robotic and engineering components.

We have accomplished our goal by exposing an underserved community to these fields. Over 90% of youth and teens have increased their knowledge of STEM and robotics.

Last year, we were feeding 2 times a week. Now, we are feeding 5 days a week and partnered with GCS Wrap It Up program to help feed the community.

This summer 2019, we will be training youth ages 9-11 CAD and 3-D printing. Participants will attain CAD certification with our organization.
We will also be implementing our lawn and building maintenance apprenticeship program for teens ages 14-17.

In Nov 2018, we received our 2nd round of funding from the Women 2 Women Fund for our Phenomenal Women in S.T.E.M. program. We currently have 5 women taking their A+ certification and 3 women enrolled in MOS - Word certification training.
