Bridging interests to competencies
Only a few of the adolescents undergoing vocational education in Switzerland choose to be trained in one of the STEM fields like mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology, although the corresponding skills of the digitalized working world are in high demand. Utilising an approach that is designed to address young people, Pro Juventute aims to interest adolescents in the STEM world and inspire their career choice. The aim is to bridge the gap between personal interests and abilities of the target groups and the promotional offers of third parties in the STEM field. The goal is to demystify STEM, to show new target groups perspectives and to support young STEM talents in Switzerland.
