Axalta offers financial support and mentorship to youth seeking STEM careers
Glen Mills, PA – June 11, 2015: If you want to help make a difference in the world, consider making a positive impact in a young person’s life through education and encouragement. Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, believes in doing just that. Its partnership with Young Men and Women in Charge (YMWIC) Foundation Inc., an organization focused on providing opportunities for students who are economically disadvantaged or under-represented within the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, is helping junior high and high school students prepare
for collegiate programs and careers.
Axalta recently hosted YMWIC program participants at its Coatings Technology Center in Wilmington, Delaware where students had an opportunity to job shadow chemists and research associates. Axalta’s Corporate Affairs Head for North America, Lisa Miree-Luke, recently announced Axalta’s support at YMWIC’s scholarship banquet.
