LANCASTER, PA (August 1, 2016) – The Junior League of Lancaster (JLL) accepted one of two Community Partner Awards on August 12th from the North Museum of Lancaster. “The JLL is genuinely honored to receive this award from the North Museum, and to be regarded as an effective and valuable community partner in Lancaster. As Girls + STEM is one of our key Issue-based Community Impact focus areas, we are proud to have joined forces with the North Museum to support its STEM Sisters program through voluntarism – together, we are empowering young women through the Museum’s offerings to access, explore, and ignite their passions for STEM.” Said JLL President Ann Carter.
JLL is seeking to recruit its next generation of women to take the organization to a new level of awareness, collaboration, and success. What better place to start than with the STEM Sister Program. One of the JLL’s two key impact areas; girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields is a program that provides opportunities for girls and young women to explore and investigate educational opportunities often overlooked or underserved to the female population.
Upcoming events at the North Museum include the Discovery Dinner on October 16th– where STEM Sisters kick-off the new school year with an evening bringing girls and their parents together with female STEM professionals for dinner followed by STEM discussions, experiments and activities.
