Trading Tech 300 Program Goals:
In response to the national STEM crisis, and the Chicago youth violence crisis, the LaSalle Street trading consortium is partnering with the Pathway to Adventure Council to launch Trading Tech 300, which is a Merit Badge and Career Exploring Community Service program with the following goals:
Develop mentoring partnerships and program sponsorships with LaSalle Street trading and technology firms to create STEM-oriented opportunities for Scouts, Explorers and for at-risk youth in the challenged neighborhoods in and around the Chicagoland area.
· Develop a volunteer recruitment, training and sponsorship program to create needed mentors for the technology-oriented workshop program. Trading Tech 300’s first corporate partner, Advantage Futures’ workshop is being offered on July 15th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Maximum number of attendees will be 24.
