Primary & Secondary Education

Global Objectives

Theory of Change: If a student attends schools with strong school leadership, well-prepared teachers and mentors, and engaging curriculum, and is supported by informed and engaged parents and caregivers, then that student will be prepared to participate successfully in the workforce and contribute to their community as an individual and citizen.

Program Goal: Build capacity and align educational systems by focusing on the development of school leadership, teachers, programs and curricula that advance students' capacity for lifelong learning and their overall educational outcomes, especially in subjects that can prepare them for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.

Local Strategies

Boeing's primary competitive advantage is -- and always will be -- our people. We need a world-class public education system to ensure that the children of our communities have the skills they need to participate in the exciting work that we do. With a focus on education reform and real-world learning, we can close the skills gap, ensure continued innovation and jobs creation, and develop a workforce suited for the challenges of a global economy.

To improve and align systems that advance students' skills and ensure their future success, we invest in:

  • Partnerships that strengthen STEM pathways for underserved students by implementing evidence-based curriculum and high-quality teacher professional development;
  • Efforts to improve educational environments for all students and promote excellent instruction through evidence-based practices and strong school leadership.

Boeing makes investments to primary and secondary education nonprofits in King, Pierce, and Snohomish County.
