Terracon Foundation is collaborating with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to advance girls’ development in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Terracon Foundation will support building girls' confidence and competency in STEM, as well as teach them about the importance of STEM in today's society.
For more than a century, GSUSA has prepared girls to lead. According to the Girl Scout Research Institute study How Girl Scout STEM Programs Benefit Girls (PDF), 77 percent of girls say that, because of Girl Scouts, they’re considering a career in technology. Additionally, compared to other girls, girls who participate in Girl Scouts are more interested in exploring STEM activities and taking more STEM-related classes in school. Terracon is proud to support Girl Scouts as it prepares young women and girls for a lifetime of leadership in STEM fields.
Terracon is an employee-owned engineering consulting firm with more than 4,000 employees providing environmental, facilities, geotechnical, and materials services from more than 140 offices with services available in all 50 states. The Terracon Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Terracon, has awarded more than $1.6 million to community organizations, universities, dependents of employees, and for disaster relief efforts. It’s because of clients that Terracon has grown each year, which allows it to give back to communities through the Terracon Foundation. The Terracon Foundation is honored to support incredible organizations, such as Girl Scouts of the USA.
