A Madison-based nonprofit called Maydm plans to ramp up growth after being selected for a five-year, $500,000 grant award.

The organization aims to support girls and youth of color in 6th grade through high school as they pursue education in STEM fields, offering workshops, summer programs and paid internships.

Maydm recently announced it’s getting a $500,000 grant from the American Family Institute for Social and Corporate Impact, with the first $100,000 coming this year. These dollars will be used for staff and intern pay, funding the internship program itself, as well as related programming on resume development, interviewing, workplace behavior and team building, and financial literacy.
