Thanks to donors like you, this past September, Career Girls hosted the fourth of six virtual camps planned for 2022. From September 22 - 24, Career Girls welcomed girls from the United States, Canada, and worldwide for a 3-day intensive camp focused on Preparing for College. During the camp, girls learned what it takes to get into college from women experts in education and college admissions. They discovered how to write about achievements and the power of presenting their authentic selves to college admissions officers from women experts at LinkedIn. In addition, the College Board guided them through developing a “countdown to college” timeline and identifying their ideal college major and career options.
One of the most exciting parts of camp is seeing the impact of our programming in action. For example, one of our goals is to build confidence and self-esteem in girls. During the Preparing for College Virtual Camp, girls learned valuable confidence-building skills through an exercise in one of the daily breakout groups. The activity focused on believing in yourself and the way that we communicate this belief to others.
Thanks to the generous support of people like you, Career Girls reached our goal of welcoming girls to six Virtual Camps in 2022, continuing to provide them free of charge for every girl who wants to attend. In October, we welcomed campers to our Cybersecurity camp, and in November, we welcomed girls to the Web3, Blockchain, and NFT camp. With your continued support, Career Girls will welcome girls to six Virtual Camps in 2023 and can continue to serve girls worldwide and close The Imagination Gap. Thank you for your support!
Career Girls Reaches Goal of Six Successful Camps!

Career Girls 2022 Virtual Camp Line Up
We’re thrilled to report that with your generous support, we produced six incredible camps attended by hundreds of girls across the U.S., Canada, and worldwide. The camps provide the girls direct access to diverse and accomplished women role models and subject matter experts in these exciting fields.
We create an environment that celebrates diversity and ensures that the girls feel comfortable and accepted no matter what. As a result, we have an extremely high repeat camper rate. Almost 100% of girls will attend another camp. This speaks volumes about the quality of our events and the safe and welcoming space we create in our programs.
With your help, we’re looking forward to our virtual camps in 2023 and continuing to provide them free of charge for every girl who wants to attend.
With your continued support, Career Girls can continue to serve girls worldwide and close The Imagination Gap. Thank you for your support!
Thanks to donors like you, this past August, Career Girls hosted the third of six virtual camps planned for 2022. From August 2 - 5, Career Girls welcomed girls from the United States, Canada, Rwanda, and Morocco for a 4-day intensive camp focused on AI, Machine Learning, and Robotics. The 2022 camp welcomed over a dozen women experts from the Toyota Research Institute (TRI). Campers had the opportunity to engage directly with TRI's all-star lineup of women working in robotics. In an industry historically dominated by men, TRI proved that women can thrive and be leaders in AI, machine learning, and robotics. The camp generated an environment of inclusion, representation, and empowerment that was evident in the camp’s impact on the girls.
One of the most exciting parts of camp is seeing the impact of our programming in action. One of our goals is to close The Imagination Gap – the difference between career choices that girls imagine for themselves and the range of careers actually available for them to pursue based on their interests. During the AI, Machine Learning, and Robotics Virtual Camp, one camper reported that “my favorite part of camp was when the panelists shared how they got to the place they are today, it really inspired me.” Access to accomplished women role models gives girls a roadmap to success.
With your help, we’re looking forward to conducting one more virtual camp in 2022 and continuing to provide them free of charge for every girl who wants to attend. In September, we welcomed campers to our Preparing for College camp, and in October, we welcomed campers to our Cybersecurity camp. We look forward to welcoming girls to the Web3, Blockchain, and NFT camp from November 17 - 19. With your continued support, Career Girls can continue to serve girls worldwide and close The Imagination Gap. Thank you for your support!
