Funded by the Toyota USA Foundation, Make the Future™, Connecting Girls to Manufacturing aims to increase the participation and retention of women and girls, especially women and girls of color, in STEM education and courses in the advanced manufacturing pathway.

The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity Education Foundation (NAPEEF) leads the project and has engaged participants from several states with Toyota manufacturing plants, including: Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, Texas and West Virginia.

Our team developed an informative and enlightening suite of tools for educators, counselors, administrators and recruiters. NAPE services are also available to assist in applying these strategies to your program.
