Narrative

Currently, our programs are focused on four critical areas of development for girls:

  • Literacy and Academic Success. Building reading proficiency is part of everything we do, starting with our Elementary School Program. Literacy - the development of knowledge and fluency in finance, media, and other areas - is built into specific programs. But whether it's reading skills or other areas of literacy, the goal is academic success.
  • STEM. Science, technology, engineering and math are key areas of learning (and career development) that we enable girls to explore through Eureka!, Operation SMART (Science, Math and Relevant Technologies) BuildIT, and other programs.
  • Leadership and Critical Thinking. For girls to be confident, they need to develop critical thinking and leadership skills early in life, so our work with girls involves public speaking, making presentations, critical assessment of media messages, and other 21st Century leadership skills.
  • Health, Wellness, and Sexuality. We educate and empower girls to learn about their health, and we use holistic programs to help girls connect their mind and body.
