At CAPIS, we understand the importance of giving back. For years, participating in philanthropic events has been a part of our core values, we are proud to support organizations who specifically target improving the lives of women and children.
In keeping with this tradition, CAPIS again will be making a financial contribution to the Young Women’s Preparatory Network (YWPN) and is a proud sponsor of its STEAM Challenge, an event designed to develop and teach concepts in science, technology, engineering and math through interactive activities, encouraging competition and community awareness.
The 2022 YWPN STEAM Challenge will take place virtually and will be a fun-filled and educational day of team presentations of innovative STEAM ideas, friendly competition and community awareness. It will take place on Saturday, February 26, 2022, NorthPark Center, Dallas, Tx. Between 1-4 p.m.
“CAPIS is a proud supporter of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network,” Ann Sebert, Chief Executive Officer at CAPIS said. “The support that YWPN provides for young women in our community is unparalleled and we are thrilled to be a part of their success. It’s all part of the CAPIS Difference – committing to great relationships in our community and not just in the financial industry.”
In 2021, CAPIS also financially supported YWPN.
The YWPN’s mission is to support single-gender, college preparatory, public education in Texas and beyond. According to the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, girls tend to drop out of the STEAM academic pipeline earlier than boys, with many losing interest in these subjects during middle school and high school. YWPN gives young women the academic and leadership skills to achieve success in college and in life. The program’s success is striking: 100% of its students who graduate from high school are accepted at a college or university.
CAPIS supports various charities, including Sarah’s Circle, a non-profit organization with a mission of serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. On February 28, 2021, we sponsored its annual Winter Walk.
