Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been busy on and off the football field.
Kelce is buying a building to create a STEM workspace for underserved teens, giving them the opportunity to “explore careers in STEM, launch their own entrepreneurial ventures and gain real-world experience.”
Kelce believes that “kids can’t concentrate if they don’t feel safe. They can’t envision a career they’ve never heard of or learn a skill they’ve never been taught. So, together with Operation Breakthrough, we’re going to create this place.”
The initiative will be called Ignition Lab: Powered by 87 & Running, Kelce’s charity foundation.
