Trading Tech 300


In response to Chicago’s shortage of skilled talent in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related fields, the Pathway to Adventure Council has partnered with the finance industry and others. By leveraging Scouting’s merit badge curriculum our partners have created a hands-on learning environment that has produced an impactful and memorable experience. Scouts are learning from qualified professionals in the area of study. They are being inspired to strive to new heights in the business settings that they are being exposed to.

Through the Trading Tech 300 program Scouts are provided a positive way to spend their day off from school safely as they earn a STEM-related merit badge. Along the way they also learn about Chicago’s finance industry and our partners’ businesses. The long-term goal is that the industry will find their next generation of employees of character and that Scouts will discover their calling too. Trading Tech 300 partners are instrumental in furthering STEM opportunities for Scouts by conducting merit badge clinics in their offices.
