Education partners and programs: training tomorrow’s leaders

 

Our world needs to train the next generations so they are prepared to tackle the challenges of the future. Each year, we devote nearly one-third of our budget to educating these future workers.

 

Alcoa Foundation has developed several partnerships focused on youth education, notably to encourage youth to pursue careers in STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
