St. Ignatius High School Launches STEM Vocational Program

Twenty students from St. Ignatius High School in the Cayo District will now be able to learn trade skills through a collaboration with the STEM-U Foundation. The school will launch a welding and NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) vocational program that seeks to establish competency-based STEM vocational training. The agreement seeks to formally establish a partnership between the two educational organizations to improve employment opportunities for youth. Cayo Correspondent Eliu Yacab was there for the launch of the first-of-its-kind program and spoke to Jaris Mitchel, the owner of STEM-U Foundation, about the initiative. 

The project’s curriculum has been established by the American Welding Society (AWS) and the American Society of Non-destructive Testing (ASNT).
