John Deere Inspire: What Is Your Life's Mission?
Through personal connections and hands-on experiences, the John Deere Inspire program empowers the next generation of innovators to pursue educations and careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). One way we do that is through our strategic partnership with FIRST, a mentor-based robotics program that encourages youth to develop not only STEM skills, but also life skills. For the 2016-2017 FIRST season, John Deere is currently supporting 516 teams in five different countries, with 264 John Deere mentors having given over 17,000 volunteer hours already this year. Empowering students to dream big and help feed, clothe and shelter the growing population by the year 2050 is not only our mission, it’s an honor. What is your life’s mission?
