Girl Scouts USA and Firestone Partners with "On The Road"
Girl Scouts of the USA is pleased to continue its partnership with Firestone Complete Auto CareTM whose support has lead to the development of On the Road, a program that encourages girls to be competent, smart and safe drivers.
On the Road provides teenage girls, 14-17, with innovative hands-on activities to learn about automotive safety and maintenance, smart driving and careers in the automotive industry. In 2007, the program's reach will have a direct impact on girls in more than 40 councils through its grants and Car Care Academies facilitated by Trisha Hessinger, automotive education specialist and professional driver. The program will further reach girls around the globe using original resources including the On the Road focus book, online games and e-cards, and appearances at girl-focused tradeshows and events.
Firestone Complete Auto Care's generous investment has been leveraged by matching funds from the Department of Labor to create automotive industry internship opportunities. This dynamic duo and their efforts support GSUSA's continuous mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character. Firestone Complete Auto Care is also an official Diamond Sponsor of Girl Scouts 95th Anniversary festivities to take place in June 2007.
Firestone Complete Auto Care is designed to meet consumers' automotive maintenance, repair and tire needs in a convenient one-stop shop. Since 1926, drivers have trusted Firestone Complete Auto Care to keep their vehicles running well. To learn more about their locations, visit www.FirestoneCompleteAutoCare.com
