ViaSat In The Community
Our employees are impacting our community and schools through opportunities in STEAM: science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Using our core competency as a technology company, we hope to inspire and instill a sense of excitement about the opportunities that lie ahead in STEAM career paths.
Our hands-on approach involves educational entities and partnerships that allow us to bring students on campus for tours, activities, and interactions with the same engineers who are solving some of the world’s toughest communications problems.

Veteran and Military Support
From the troops who use our services oversees, to the many military members who call our community home, we are grateful for the protection and freedom our armed forces provides. Through sponsorships, programs, and assistance, we’re helping support and rehabilitate the many men, women, and families who sacrifice daily for our freedom.
Employee Driven Outreach
One of the most important aspects of our success has been, and continues to be, our people. We have a talented group of employees who are smart and innovative, who work hard and deliver success.
These same employees are also good citizens, giving of both their time and other resources to worthwhile community causes. At the core of our giving lies employee involvement and engagement. We encourage everyone to bring ideas and causes to the table that they want to support.
Thanks to their efforts, and our growth, we’re able to give back in a variety of ways, including two main areas of focus.
