Why We’re Here
Where you grow up shouldn’t determine your future success. Yet all too often, young people are put at a disadvantage because they lack the quality education, mentorship and opportunities that pave the road to successful STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) careers.
Accademia di Gagliato Globale (AGG) was founded on the principle that talent is universal, but opportunity is not. We seek to close that opportunity gap by supporting STEM professionals who return to their home communities as role models and ambassadors for STEM ingenuity. Our mission is to inspire young people in disadvantaged communities or who would otherwise not be exposed to STEM opportunities and success stories. AGG members (accademici) are charged with opening the door to the unlimited possibilities in STEM education and careers.
Where We Are
Gagliato is a small town in the southernmost region of the Italian peninsula. It is nestled on a hillside, a ten-minute drive from the sea, and a world away from the pace and lifestyle of the technology sector.
