The National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) is pleased to announce the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Outreach initiative to promote awareness of these specialties within the sea services to students, educators, and the public. In an era of decreased college enrollment in STEM related programs and an increasing global demand for a STEM competent workforce, it is NNOA’s belief that a strategically executed community outreach plan that includes ongoing mentorship, scholarship assistance, and tailored activities will generate and sustain interest in STEM curriculum and sea service careers. Mission– The STEM Outreach Initiative was created by the National Naval Officers Association in 2015 to unify the voice of the organization in its community engagement efforts and its promotion of sea service careers by providing collaborative opportunities for invested organizations. Vision-To leverage the collective expertise of the NNOA active duty, retired, and reserve membership along with STEM focused organizations to raise awareness and increase the applicant pool of eligible STEM and sea service candidates. It is our hope than events like the STEM Outreach Day during the NNOA National Conference will stimulate conversation, facilitate mentorship opportunities, and serve as a gateway to increase naval scholarship submissions, and career planning that includes military service.
In assessing the needs of the sea services and the country at large, I have focused my efforts on the replacement workforce challenges facing our country. As you well know, huge gaps are occurring in several career fields as baby boomers continue to transition out of the workforce, especially in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (STEAM) related areas. NNOA is working to identify established organizations willing to partner with NNOA to address this growing need.
If you are actively involved in a STEM and/or STEAM project on behalf of NNOA or a potential partner organization, please forward that organization’s information to your local chapter president for consolidation by the regional vice presidents.
