Sky – Skilled Knowledgeable Youth program (501c3) exposes youth to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) projects that will enhance their abilities through challenging projects that interest them in engineering and skilled trade jobs. These activities may be conducted in-school, after school and/or on weekend classes. The participants will be middle and/or high school students developing hands-on skills in a variety of activities that simulate industry practices to include academic skills and job readiness/employability skills when the projects(s) are completed.

Because of the success at Calera, SKY is expanding its mission to encompass other schools throughout Alabama.
