Farmingdale, NJ – May 11, 2023 – Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore announces a collaborative partnership with Attentive Energy, demonstrating a commitment to building a strong and inclusive female leadership pipeline, empowering girls to be environmental stewards, and continuing to inspire, through action, New Jersey’s leaders of tomorrow.
Attentive Energy, a subsidiary of TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC, is delivering offshore wind opportunities to empower communities today and tomorrow. Attentive Energy is developing an 84,332-acre area located approximately 42 miles from its nearest point to New Jersey. When completed, the project has the potential to generate 3,000 MW of clean energy to power nearly 2.2 million homes.
“Attentive Energy is thrilled to announce our new program that supports the Girl Scouts in their efforts to excel in STEM education with a focus on clean energy. By encouraging and empowering young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math, we hope to inspire the next generation of leaders in the field of sustainable energy,” said Damian Bednarz, Managing Director, Attentive Energy. “Through this program we are committed to providing future female leaders with the resources they need to succeed, and we look forward to seeing the incredible impact they will have on clean energy and the environment.”
As a partner, Attentive Energy will offer educational programming, mentorship, and volunteer support to accelerate the girl scout leadership experience offered by Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. This generous contribution will help expand access to our programming through innovation and diversity, including:
- Sponsorship of the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore Innovation Station, a mobile STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) lab, hosted in a cargo van, that provides transformative mobile programming designed to increase the representation of economically disadvantaged girls in STEAM education and to disrupt the cycle of generational poverty for girls and their families through STEAM careers.
- Sponsorship and volunteer support for a no-cost Middle School Girl Scout Troop in a disadvantaged community, providing life-changing enrichment programming to girls that they cannot get anywhere else. The partnership will also support these girls with a Girl Scout uniform and the opportunity to earn badges, giving these girls a foundation to
grow into strong, confident women who make the world a better place.
- Mentorship and support of events including Young Women’s Leadership Summit, Gold Awards and other mentoring opportunities.
“Philanthropic giving to organizations that specifically serve women and girls represented less than 2% of all donations last year. This donation and partnership will accelerate our ability to provide girls with the tools and mentorship to make a difference in their communities and to make the world a better place. We are incredibly grateful for Attentive Energy’s commitment to supporting and uplifting young women,” said Heather Coburn, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore.
James Daly, Mayor of Farmingdale commented, “When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. I’m very happy for the partnership between my friends at Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore and Attentive Energy to support young women and to further the mission of Girl Scouts.”
