'Making the Future' Program
There’s an education crisis in the U.S.: a relative decline in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) proficiency, fewer young people interested in STEM fields, and – perhaps most alarming – a decline in measured creativity. The future competitiveness and innovative capacity of the U.S., the quality of our workforce, and the prosperity of future generations are at risk.
Cognizant’s Making the Future education initiative was created to unleash the passion of young people in STEM disciplines by creating fun, hands-on learning opportunities. Through financial, in-kind and volunteer support for schools and nonprofits; advocacy; college scholarships; and our flagship Making the Future After-School and Summer Program, Cognizant seeks to develop 21st century skills like creativity, innovation, and collaboration that will create a brighter future for our children, preparing them to be tomorrow’s leaders in our global economy.
Furthering the proud tradition of Project Outreach, Cognizant employees are volunteering to enhance education in the communities where they live and work. For more information, contact MakingtheFuture@Cognizant.com.
