The moment a young person decides to become an engineer. The moment a military veteran makes the switch to a civilian career. The moment communities come together to better meet the needs of their people.

Raytheon Technologies supports those moments through Connect Up – our social responsibility initiative to drive transformative, generational impact. By connecting talented people united in purpose, we strive to lift up underserved communities, inspire the workforce of the next generation and build a world that is more prosperous and equitable for all.
