Survive and Thrive Education recently announced it received a grant from Google’s Global Data Center RISE program which supports programs, organizations and nonprofits working to create a robust pipeline of tech talent from underrepresented groups.
The $25,000 grant from Google will support engagement and extra-curricular learning opportunities for students, the majority labeled at-risk, served by Survive and Thrive Education(STE). STE intervenes in circumstances that could interfere with student success and advocates for educational success. STE assists students in meeting high school graduation requirements, achieving post-secondary placement, and supporting students in their post-secondary paths.
The Google grant will help the organization provide their services with a specific interest in STEM job skills and/or education preparation. “As an organization and collective of dedicated post-secondary educators, we are both humbled and excited to be working with Google to expand our service footprint. Our goal as always is to create tax payers, not tax consumers,” said Dr. Anthony Johnson, Executive Director of STE.
