New mentoring program promotes STEM careers

The Girl Scouts outreach efforts include more than selling cookies and volunteering. The organization is reaching out to schools with a new mentoring program designed to generate interest in STEM careers.

Partnering with AT&T, the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas recently announced a new program that will promote and introduce STEM-based opportunities for underserved girls in the local schools.  “IMAGINE: Your STEM Future” is an initiative funded through a $1 million AT&T Aspire contribution designed to reach 6,000 young women across the U.S. The STEM-related curriculum will allow girls to partner with science, technology, engineering and math professionals and engage in interactive activities to stimulate interest in stem careers.

Holmes High School will be the first school to implement the new curriculum to over 250 girls.
