Direct Employers Institute

Direct Employers Institute is a nonprofit organization that enables middle and high school students to explore STEM careers with Central Indiana employers. They work closely with educational and youth-serving organizations to identify high potential, socioeconomically disadvantaged students and match them with employers that are committed to increasing equality and diversity in their workforce.

Their programs include a comprehensive summer program called STEM YES! for Central Indiana students in grades 9th-12th who are interested in exploring STEM & business careers in a work-based environment as well as job shadows and internship opportunities and workplace simulation programs.
