MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester based nonprofit Girls at Work received a $10,000 grant from the Bosch Community Fund that will go towards increasing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) exposure to local at-risk girls along with developing a curriculum that can be replicated for future lessons and workshops. 

The mission of Girls at Work is to empower girls with the tools to overcome adversity and build confidence to face current and future life challenges. They offer the opportunity for girls to learn how to use power tools safely in a supportive environment.

The positive impact of this grant and the stellar work of the organization will benefit the local economy for years to come. More so, there is an immediate need for qualified STEM talent. According to a recent survey from the Business-Higher Education Forum and PWC survey, STEM related opportunities will reach more than 2.7 million openings by 2020.

The Bosch Community Fund is dedicated to provide teachers, students and local communities with the tools they need to create exceptional learning experiences and implement innovative approaches to enhance STEM and environmental sustainability education.
