Girl Scouts Receive Contribution From AT&T

AT&T is continuing its support of Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s (GSNC) STEM Education Initiative for the fifth year. GSNC’s STEM Education Initiative offers a broad spectrum of STEM programming designed to open up the world of STEM to all girls. AT&T’s support enables GSNC to provide STEM experiences relevant to everyday life to girls of Nassau County.

Most recently GSNC held its annual “Imagine Your Possibilities” STEM Conference at Hofstra University, an event where middle school girls experienced a full day of hands-on activities in various STEM fields and the unique opportunity to meet and interact with professional women in these fields. Studies show girls begin to lose interest in STEM during middle school and this is reflected in choice of high school courses and college majors. The goal of GSNC’s STEM Initiative is to expand girls’ overall interest in and confidence in their ability to tackle STEM-related subjects as they transition into their high school/college career path. To this end, GSNC offers a variety of STEM programming targeting middle and high school girls.

“We are extremely thankful AT&T continues to show their support with this generous contribution,” said Randell M. Bynum, CEO of Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “Our STEM Education Initiative is a crucial part of our programming and AT&T’s support provides Girl Scouts endless opportunities to discover STEM-related experiences.”

AT&T’s continued support of GSNC’s STEM Education Initiative is part of the company’s legacy of supporting educational programs focused on STEM disciplines in New York through AT&T Aspire, its signature $450 million philanthropic initiative which drives innovation in education by bringing diverse resources to bear on the issue including funding, technology, employee volunteerism and mentoring. With millions of students affected since its launch in 2008, Aspire is one of the nation’s largest corporate commitments focused on school success and workforce readiness by creating new learning environments and educational delivery systems to help students succeed and prepare them to take on 21st-century careers.

“AT&T is committed to creating opportunities for women to succeed in tech. We support Girl Scouts of Nassau County year after year because their program does amazing work to provide girls with access to STEM skills and to introduce them to various career paths in STEM,” said Marissa Shorenstein, president of the Northeast Region of AT&T. “We hope that the Girl Scouts will continue to inspire girls to pursue their passions in the coming year.”
