(AUSTIN) – Time Warner Cable, which has supported Girlstart’s STEM education for girls since 2011 through its Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative, is extending that partnership through a grant to help fund the 2014-15 Girlstart After School programs.

The $10,000 grant will help support Girlstart’s expanding after-school program, expected to reach more than 1,000 Central Texas girls in the coming school year. This year, 45 schools in 12 Central Texas school districts will host Girlstart After School programs, compared to just 16 schools in five districts when Time Warner Cable first partnered with Girlstart five years ago.

“Time Warner Cable has been one of our most consistent corporate partners over the past five years, and we’re proud that they’re continuing that relationship through helping fund Girlstart After School,” said Tamara Hudgins, executive director of Girlstart. “This grant is helping us reach more girls than in any previous year, for a program that’s helping girls succeed in the classroom and, as we’ve recently discovered, on standardized tests.”
