Jubilee Family Development Center is thrilled to announce that Belvac will support Jubilee’s new STEAM Center with a $51,724 gift.
Each year, Belvac organizes an internal fundraising campaign to support a local nonprofit organization. This year, Belvac employees supported Jubilee Family Development Center and Jubilee’s new STEAM Center, which will provide educational and training programs for youth and adults in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).
The STEAM Center will offer programs for youth in robotics, e-sports, graphics, educational games, coding, and foreign languages. For youth, the STEAM Center will provide a solid foundation in STEAM principles and generate greater interest in high-demand science and technology-based career fields. The STEAM Center will also offer programs for adults in welding, machining, computer networking, building trades, Certified Nursing Assistant, commercial driver’s license, and HVAC fundamentals. For adults, the STEAM Center will provide opportunities to learn skills and trades that will move unemployed or underemployed adults toward permanent employment through the provision of hands-on workshops, learning labs, and soft skills training.
Renovations are currently underway for the new STEAM Center at Jubilee Family Development Center. Of the $305,000 budget, over $143,000 has been raised in gifts and pledges to date. Belvac’s $51,724 gift will immediately impact STEAM Center renovations, and Jubilee Family Development Center sincerely appreciates Belvac’s generosity and community spirit.
