While addressing issues and barrier in expanding the talent pipeline, we are also focused on helping the workforce with their growth whether it’s providing apprenticeships as a stepping stone for a career or helping transitioning military members into the workforce.


STEMOVATION supports juniors and seniors in the STEM and Bio-Medical Allied Health (BMAH) Magnet programs at Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS). Each year, juniors in these programs complete a Community Challenge project, and often lead to the students senior Capstone Projects.

Impact: After two years of this program, we have assisted with 10 student capstone projects at Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

Teacher Externships

Local school systems work together with FMA member organizations to provide teachers a unique professional development opportunity connecting the classroom to the workplace.

Impact: Still in its infancy, the Fort Meade Alliance has placed two teachers within businesses to bring that experience back to their students.

If you are interested in getting involved with these programs on a volunteer basis or by making a donation, please contact Tim O’Ferrall, General Manager at toferrall@ftmeadealliance.org or 410.850.4940.
