Thanks to YOU - Business Model and IPO Bootcamp!

Imagine learning about the stock market, IPOs, and various roles in a business at just 10 to 15 years old. You have made a difference for over 70 girls in our six week Business Model and IPO Bootcamp. It’s thoughtful donors like you who help see their future and how they can start their own path to success right now.

 This is what you made possible:

“I will work harder in my studies and extracurricular activities so more companies will want to hire me and I can have the chance to negotiate terms to fit myself better. I also want to have myself grounded and labelled positively in the company.” 

11 year old

“I think everyone was amazing. I learned the first steps to create a successful business and I also learned some of the roles you need in a business that I did not know before.” 

12 year old

Plus, we continue to show strong impact with our Imagination Index measurement and evaluation tool. Leading the way was a 33 point self-reported gain on understanding the steps they will need to take to achieve their career goal.

You are helping girls close the imagination gap.

This is just the start! Your support is also providing girls in our upcoming camps with the opportunity to learn how to manage their finances, dive into environmental science, and explore artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics.

Thank you for making a difference.

 

Warm regards,

“My favorite part/most inspirational moment of this program was the first day when we talked about what we would like to do in the future 20 years from now.” - Mackenzie

“I learned that it takes time and lots of patience to save up for what you want but it’s more important to get what you need. I also learned that there are different ways to save your money and different strategies.” - Jada

Plus, our post-camp surveys show a 27% program impact as measured by our Imagination Index!

Planning is Underway! Hear What Our Mentors Have to Say!

Sadia, Career Girls mentor
Sadia, Career Girls mentor

Sadia Yaqoob is an environmental geologist and one of our amazing Career Girls mentors. When we interviewed Sadia, she encouraged girls to consider future careers in geology and environmental science. “Girls can work as environmental geologists like me…they can be volcanologists, [or] seismologists,” she said. “There are so many exciting careers that a girl can pursue in geology!”

Career Girls is all about expanding what girls think is possible. Thanks to you, we’re thrilled to be launching an Environmental Science Mini-Camp this summer! We will bring engaging lessons and inspiring role models like Sadia to girls across the country in an interactive virtual camp format. 

We’re also excited to announce that our first Virtual Camp of 2021 starts this week, in partnership with the Friends of the Commission on the Status of Women! Girls across the country will learn about Financial Literacy in this 3-day camp.

These initiatives are only possible because of your support. Thank you for being a Career Girls donor and friend!!
