Summary

ENVISION College and Career advances girls' awareness of, readiness for, and success in high-demand careers in growth industries, including STEM. ENVISION provides career awareness opportunities, job readiness training, and post secondary planning to support success in and transition from high school to college and career.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Low income young women of color's odds for academic and vocational readiness and success are disturbing. Only 30% of girls passed the High School Math Exit Exam, and 48% passed Reading. Once in the job market, the average woman in SF earns 78% of the average man's earnings; Black women earn 58% and Latinas earn 52%. Women hold only 26% of relatively well-paid computer and mathematical jobs.

How will this project solve this problem?

This picture is bleak, yet research tells us that girls can beat these odds. To succeed, girls need sustained connections in a girl focused environment that encourages them to explore new areas of interest and practice new skills with the support of adult allies. Research also shows that single-gender programming, like ours, is especially valuable in helping girls stay connected to academic subjects such as math, science, and technology, all of which are important pathways to future success.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through ENVISION, over 60 young women in the next year will: 1. Identify careers of interest, research these careers, and identify educational pathways toward completion 2. Develop positive vocational behaviors and competencies to be successful in the workforce 3. Identify post secondary options, discover areas of academic and vocational interest, and use these to enhance college readiness 4. Develop individualized, realistic, and actionable Next Steps Transition Plans
