Imagine your child having the opportunity to participate in programs geared to science, technology, engineering and math? Their interests, educational opportunities and future careers paths would be limitless. Now imagine all children, no matter their circumstances, being provided with those same opportunities? Simply stated, successful kids are the future of our community.

GM Canada CAMI Assembly and United Way share the belief that empowering children and youth is one of the most powerful ways to address the root causes of social challenges. In an effort to accelerate STEM educational opportunities throughout the County, United Way is proud to announce that supplementary funding from GM Canada’s Plant City Grant Program has been provided.

“Our goal is to inspire the next generation of innovators,” said Gary Duff, CAMI Assembly Plant Manager. “We’re proud to support our local Oxford County United Way – this investment and their programs will help spark the creative minds of many children and youth.”

Kelly Gilson, Executive Director with United Way Oxford adds, “Regardless of a child’s family income or situation, hands-on, interactive programming that improves STEM competency will inspire children, little girls, to pursue post-secondary studies and excel in STEM careers. We are happy to partner with GM Canada CAMI Assembly to help kids in our community be all they can be.”
