The Synchrony Skills Academy has partnered with DAE to deliver our High School program. This after school program offers 10th-12th grade students in Stamford, CT-area high schools the opportunity to learn and explore new skills (e.g. Digital Content Creation, Website Development, 3-D printing, etc.) that will prepare them for college and/or work. Students will receive college admission support and guidance and have a chance to network with fellow students, Synchrony staff, UCONN Engineering Ambassadors, and others.

“The Synchrony Skills Academy High School Program perfectly aligns with our mission to bridge the gap between the world of corporate America and the needs and realities of underserved communities.  The opportunity to help reverse a decades-long trend in radical underrepresentation in tech careers is just as important to us as the development of the tech workforce, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Synchrony on this dual mission.”
