WATTS-WILLOWBROOK BOYS & GIRLS CLUB LAUNCHES MY.FUTURE 2.0 - A NATIONAL INITIATIVE TO TRANSFORM DIGITAL LEARNING FOR YOUTH
Groundbreaking in the education and out of school-time space, this platform will enable more youth development professionals to monitor trends and gaps in learning opportunities for kids, especially those most in need.
By 2018, STEM jobs in the U.S. are expected to grow nearly twice as fast as other fields, resulting in more than eight million positions. Unfortunately, three million of these jobs in STEM may go unfilled because of a lack of people with required skills, many of which are attributed to the digital divide in education.
Through My.Future 2.0, Boys & Girls Clubs of America is helping local youth to prepare for a better tomorrow and expose them to digital opportunities they can engage with and eventually utilize in their future careers. My.Future is a safe, fun, mobile-friendly social platform that enables kids and teens to play games, build things and connect with their friends. This process is guided by youth development professionals at the local Club and who provide recognition and rewards to members as they complete activities.
