The Equal Footing Foundation (EFF), the charitable arm of the Northern Virginia Technology Council with programs for youth development and education for underserved youth in the region, appointed Amy Harris, manager of university and academic relations for the Micron Technology Foundation, to its board of directors.
The Micron Technology Foundation also recently donated $3,000 to support EFF's efforts in providing a safe after-school educational environment through the Computer Clubhouse program. The program provides more than 1,500 Fairfax County students, ages 8 to 18, a deeper understanding of the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
“The Micron Foundation strives to strengthen science, technology, engineering and math education for students in Northern Virginia,” said Harris. “By supporting the EFF and partnering with the Northern Virginia Technology Foundation, Micron has the opportunity to further aid STEM initiatives like the Computer Clubhouse program.”
