Google Donates $3 Million To Support NAACP’s STEAM Education Program

The philanthropic arm of the tech giant Google is investing in the futures of Black youth who want to pursue careers in tech. The NAACP recently announced that it has received a $3 million grant from Google.org to support initiatives surrounding STEAM education amongst youth. The donation, which will be spread out over three years, will financially back the nonprofit’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) program. The initiative provides learning and development opportunities for Black high school students to prepare them for careers in science and technology. The year-long program guides participants in bringing their ideas related to STEAM, humanities, business, and performing, visual and culinary arts from the ideation to execution stage. Students share their concepts in national competitions. Over 300,000 students have been served since the initiative’s inception.
