We are celebrating “Motorsports Awareness Month” by opening applications today for our one-of-a-kind, STEM education all-female racing team!
It starts today! We are celebrating Motorsports Awareness Month in a big way… we officially begin accepting applications for our inaugural team. The 2019-20 school year will be an exceptional experience for ten young ladies. They will have the opportunity to explore career possibilities in the automotive industry that they never knew existed.
They will also be paying it forward in our community as the spokesperson for their charity of choice. Our community partners were excited by our offer of publicity assistance. Our team will be their student spokespersons helping them to plan, produce, and create public service announcements highlighting the charity’s work.
We continue to forge new alliances daily as our way of bringing the spotlight to STEM education in Southern California. I am happy to announce an incredible group of Community Partners: San Diego County Office of Education, San Diego Public Library, Society of Women Engineers, Fleet Science Center, Expand Your Horizons, EnCorps, Promises 2 Kids, San Diego State University, University of San Diego, Climate Science Alliance, Barnes & Noble, Junior League of San Diego and Elementary Institute of Science.
When I formed this idea for Athena Racing in April, I composed a 3-year plan to expand our program beyond it’s beginning team. This year, the focus is on selecting a stellar team and creating a great foundation from which to grow. Next year our roster of programs will expand to include: weekend workshops for high school students, mentor monthlies for young ladies in college, safety classes for all ages, and an intensive driving course for adults. We’re not stopping until we see hundreds of smiles behind the wheel of an Athena Racing racecar.
Please help us in spreading the word about our program. You’ll see a link to our flyer that you can download and print. Forward this email to those who you know will be interested.
And always continue to help to connect us to donors and sponsors – private individuals, foundations, and companies. We can’t do this without the financial support of all. From $5 to $500,000, every penny counts!
We are breaking down barriers and creating historic firsts! Thank you for being here with us on this journey.
