Andrews AFB and Ramstein AB Receive Raytheon and BGCA Center of Innovation
Raytheon is establishing six 'Centers of Innovation' at Boys & Girls Clubs affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. military installations and at Clubs that support military families. The centers are being funded through the company's $5 million, multi-year commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), part of Raytheon's recent $10 million pledge to support military veterans and their families.
Andrews Air Force Base Child and Youth Programs, MD and Ramstein Air Base Child and Youth Programs, Germany received two of the six centers that will open in the fall of 2015. The centers will be fully outfitted with modern technology, and will offer full-time expert mentors to lead projects that apply the principles of science, technology, engineering and math. AF Youth Programs will use technology such as 3D printers, high-definition video conferencing and other tools to brainstorm ideas and collaborate on community improvement projects.
"The men and women who serve this country have sacrificed much for our safety and freedom, and it is our responsibility to help their families achieve great futures," said Tom Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO.
"Today's military child should be supported as they pursue a college degree, embark on a robust career or choose to serve to their country. The 'Centers of Innovation' are designed to foster critical thinking and problem solving skills that will serve military children in all their pursuits while exposing them to experiences that will inspire the innovations of our future."
