U.S. Army and Hispanic Heritage Foundation renew partnership to promote education and careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, -- The U.S. Army is continuing its partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) as a major supporter of HHF's Latinos on the Fast Track (LOFT) program, which provides leadership training and industry-specific workshops to more than 75,000 students and young professionals.
Between October 2014 and February 2015, the Army will conduct seven LOFT events designed to educate students about opportunities available in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields through Army service. HHF and the Army have a shared goal of increasing the number of students pursuing academic and career paths in those fields. The events will be conducted in Denver, Colo.; Fresno, Calif.; Pomona, Calif.; New York City; Miami; Houston; and Arlington, Texas.
At each event, Army representatives will conduct an interactive, multi-media workshop where students will discuss leadership and develop a personal action plan to achieve their goals. Army personnel will also participate on a STEM-focused panel to highlight the variety of STEM career options available in the Army.
