Centeva is dedicated to serving the communities where we live and work. Each year the company supports community organizations and local chapters of national non-profits. By staying involved with our local schools, local organizations, and volunteering in the communities, Centeva strives to give back to the communities of our employees.
Centeva passionately supports our local educational STEM/ STEAM (science, technology, engineering, and math with art integration) initiative. The need for more science, technology, engineering, and math professionals has never been more apparent. We believe our community stewardship stems from educating our young people in math, science, and technology. Our future success and our technological advantage as a nation, depends on a constant supply of highly educated, highly capable technical talent. Centeva has donated money and countless hours to promote this initiative in our local school districts. We encourage our staff, partners, and community to learn more about the STEM and STEAM programs.
Centeva has been certified as a participant in the U.S. Small Business Administration SBA 8(a) Business Development Program.
