Los Tweens & Teens has partnered with Ford Motor Company to publish an important series regarding how parents can inspire a love for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in their young girls.
Celebrate Education/Educación (#CelebrateEdu) shares advice and features positive role models to encourage educational and extra-curricular achievements.
Los Tweens’ #CelebrateEdu is working to change these numbers by sharing with Latino and multicultural parents, stories about women actually working in STEM-related fields. The ages between 7-12 are some of the most crucial developmental years and can determine a child’s educational future in many ways. Content is focused on driving simple ideas to help multicultural parents encourage, develop and embrace education from a variety of angles.
“As Girl Scout Troop Leaders we know the importance of motivating girls early on. We were very excited when Ford supported our goal of encouraging and inspiring parents to develop their child’s interests in STEM” said Cristy Clavijo-Kish and Katherine Doble-Cannata, publishers of Los Tweens & Teens.
“Education is key to the success of our Hispanic community,” says Alvaro Cabal, Ford Motor Company multicultural communications manager. “Parents who inspire, share advice and provide positive role models to our youth offer perfect encouragement for educational and extra-curricular achievements.”
