High School programs

GO4STEM™ programs inspire diverse high school students

The Deloitte Foundation is helping to prepare future talent by driving STEM education and introducing diverse students to STEM careers. With nonprofits, secondary/higher education institutions, and industry, the Foundation supports the growth of inclusive pipelines of STEM-enabled future leaders by helping students navigate career pathways while building STEM and STEM-adjacent competencies. The end goal: students can be positioned for a range of college and professional possibilities.

Initial programs aim to help young women and underrepresented high school students discover how to solve complex business problems using technology and applying data analytics to real-world challenges. The Deloitte Foundation is working to build technology-based development pathways comprised of computer science and analytics curricula, a customized curriculum to help students identify interest in professional services careers in computing and analytics, and a digital platform of programs/resources that can scale nationally to help open the aperture about what STEM education can be.

Virtual mentoring empowers future leaders

Deloitte’s Virtual Mentoring Program leverages the Strive for College UStrive online platform that connects our professionals with high school and college students to help them prepare for college, career, and a world of opportunity. Through collaboration with education organizations as well as donations from Deloitte professionals who contributed to the Deloitte Foundation Education Fund, the program provides time, talent, and resources to help students prepare for and persist through high school and college, then transition to a career. Through UStrive, students who qualify for financial assistance can opt into free, one-to-one mentoring to help them navigate the college application process, including essay assistance and resume review, as well as creating a time management plan, preparing for internships and jobs, and broad guidance on their college and career path. The students and mentors connect virtually through UStrive, enabling mentors and mentees to connect anywhere, anytime. To date, Deloitte professionals and retired Partners/Principals/Managing Directors have mentored more than 8,000 students.
