ACS Group strongly believes in the work the YWCA is doing to change these young women's lives, to live out their dreams and to have a more secure and successful future.
(PRWEB) July 18, 2013
ACS Group is a longtime supporter of the YWCA of Greater Atlanta's TGI Tech program, which is dedicated to preparing young women for non-traditional careers with a STEM focus.
“These scholarship[s] can help to open the door for a program participant whose goal is to immerse herself in non-traditional learning subjects. The opportunity to go to college is something some of these girls may not have without outside assistance, such as the generous scholarship[s] provided by ACS Group,” said Judy Fears, TGI Tech program director.
The TGI Tech program is introduced to middle school students and continues through high school. ACS Group President Raj Sardana and his wife, Nita Sardana, ACS Vice President of Community Outreach and Corporate Giving, have sponsored TGI Tech since 2006. ACS encourages its employees to take an active role in strengthening the community by supporting teen technology education and mentoring.
“The YWCA's Teen Girl's In Technology (TGI-Tech) is truly a life changing program,” Nita Sardana commented. “ACS Group strongly believes in the work the YWCA is doing to change these young women's lives, to live out their dreams and to have a more secure and successful future. For this reason, ACS Group supports the girls and the program by offering scholarships to help the young women through college. This is the second graduating class and the second time we awarded two $10,000 scholarships to two very deserving young women. This year's winners are: Rachel Taylor and Adia Applewhite. Thank you to the YWCA and Judy Fears, the TGI-Tech Program Manager for the impact they are making, changing the trajectory of the lives of Atlanta's young women.”
“ACS provides leading-edge information technology solutions and understands how very important it is to foster IT careers for girls today so we can fill the pipeline with skilled professionals for the future,” Raj Sardana said. “These same students may one day be ACS consultants working at Fortune 100 companies here in Atlanta.”
TGI Tech seeks to increase girls’ interest, confidence and competence in Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) by helping young women (ages 12-18) overcome barriers and stereotypes in these areas. The program provides girls with innovative learning opportunities while helping them to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. TGI Tech prepares young women to enter a world of non-traditional, STEM-related careers such as engineering, oceanography, computer science and biotechnology. The program also links girls to successful women in STEM professions for mentoring and encouragement.
