MESA has long relied on organizations and individuals to help support our students so they can succeed.
NASA Teaches MESA Students
The Sky Is NOT the Limit
MESA’s unparalleled network of industry partners, foundation supporters, and educational institutions are a key ingredient to the vibrant impact and far-reaching success of the program.
Industry leaders work with MESA because they recognize our ability to propel historically underrepresented students toward success in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professions. No other organization can deliver a diverse STEM workforce for the 21st century in the quantity, and of the quality, that MESA does. Corporations, government organizations, as well as public agencies like NASA all understand the value of making a strategic investment in their talent pipeline by partnering with MESA.
MESA partners have the opportunity to shape future STEM leaders through leadership training, student mentoring, teacher training, and involvement with hands-on competitions. Partners and sponsors not only gain access to MESA students and teachers, but get the opportunity to truly engage through workshop presentations, mock interviews, informal gatherings, and professional development training.
The alignment between where companies invest and where their employees give has never been stronger. With programs across California serving over 25,000 students in K-12, community colleges and universities, MESA is unique for employee engagement opportunities on a scale that no other STEM organization can offer.
MESA’s Industry Executive Council is yet another key point of collaboration where MESA’s industry partners advise and champion MESA’s programmatic and fiscal efforts. The council serves as a valuable connection between the students and centers with companies who recognize MESA’s success and capacity to develop the diverse STEM professionals that industry needs.
