We work in the Northern Virginia and military community to remove barriers so all can succeed.
In April 2017, we sponsored a group of young middle school girls to see the movie "Hidden Figures". We hope that the experience inspired them to pursue careers in math and science.
In Oct 2017 we spoke on behalf of military children to the VA Department of Education. We successfully advocated that the state adopt the "Purple Star" program for the state. This program will help military families know which schools in the state are ready and equipped to meet the needs of the military community.
Spring 2017, in conjunction with a local elementary school, we collected 1,000 books and donated them to another school. We were able to provide a book for many children to read during the summer.
