About

Help Jubilee unlock a $25,000 challenge pledge to the STEM Center!

When you donate to Jubilee, you will help unlock a $25,000 challenge gift already pledged to our new STEM Center, raising a total $50,000 to help with final renovation costs! 

Please help! Each new gift made to the STEM Center Difference Maker Challenge by midnight on November 1, 2021 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000!

Jubilee’s new STEM Center is located next door to Jubilee’s main building on Florida Avenue in a building that Jubilee already owns. The STEM Center will offer programs for youth in robotics, e-sports, graphics, educational games, coding, and foreign languages. For youth, Jubilee’s STEM Center programming will provide a solid foundation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles and generate greater interest in high-demand science and technology-based career fields.

The STEM 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 STEM Center will build upon the hands-on training opportunities currently available through Jubilee’s Bev Cosby Occupational Outreach Center, with additions such as a computer graphics lab and 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. The STEM Center will also help facilitate internships and career shadowing opportunities for adults, offering them exposure to high-demand technology and engineering-based career fields and the potential to secure future employment. The STEM Center will guide program participants through academic enrichment, career planning, and job training programs that will enable them to enter the skilled labor workforce, increasing their income and helping stabilize their families.

Thank you for being a friend to Jubilee Family Development Center. Please help us meet the $25,000 challenge for the STEM Center by making your most generous gift possible today. With your help, the Jubilee STEM Center will be open and operational by the beginning of 2022! Thank you!
