A program that's already seen success in East Baton Rouge Parish is expanding. The goal is to give high school students a head start in landing quality careers.

The faces of future leaders are getting a golden chance to learn about science and engineering in the workplace while still in high school.

“The National Science Foundation says that this year, we're going to have a million unfilled jobs, a million unfilled jobs in STEM related careers,” said Congressman Garret Graves.

Graves had a strong message at the launch for GEN READY, an initiative focusing on increasing knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math. The program, originally called the BR STEM Network, will now expand to ten other parishes. It will also create more partnerships with businesses and industry leaders.

“A dream is hollow, it's only an idea if we don't actually have the capacity, the content, the skills to fulfill it,” said Graves.

For many young students, those dreams and hopes are becoming a reality.
