Thanks to donors like you, Career Girls hosted our first-ever C-Suite Virtual Camp. From April 26 - 28, Career Girls welcomed girls for a 3-day intensive camp focused on what it takes to make it to the C-Suite in various sectors.
The Career Girls 2023 C-Suite Virtual Camp gave girls the opportunity to learn what it means to be a C-Suite executive. The camp featured women role models from various leadership positions to help guide girls on how they pave their own way into the C-Suite. Girls explored the roles and responsibilities in the C-Suite, the impact the roles have on a company, and the skills needed to succeed in the C-Suite. They participated in a mock coaching session focused on how to lead a business and learned how to identify the needs of a company, how to fund a business and build a successful team.
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. After attending the 2023 C-Suite Virtual Camp, 88% of girls agreed favorably with the statement, "Do you know the steps you will need to take to achieve your career goals?"
With your loyal support, we can continue to serve girls worldwide and close The Imagination Gap™. We look forward to sharing how your donations helped a record number of girls attend the July 2023 Career Girls AI, Machine Learning, and Robotics Virtual Camp presented in partnership with the Toyota Research Institute.
Thanks to donors like you, Career Girls hosted the first of six virtual camps planned for 2023. From January 18 - 20, Career Girls welcomed girls from the United States, Canada, and worldwide for a 3-day intensive camp focused on Environmental Science.
During the camp, girls learned about interdisciplinary careers that impact climate change decision-making on a state, federal and global level. Campers discovered how women from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) impact climate change laws. They met women delegates from COP27, the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, who negotiated with world leaders on some of the most critical climate change issues. And, they learned how the women from the private sector are leading the charge to move industries away from fossil fuels by developing transformative technology for lithium-ion battery production.
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. After attending the 2023 Environmental Science Virtual Camp, an astounding 95% of girls agreed with the statement, "I believe in myself."
Career Girls will continue to provide our Virtual Camp program free of charge for every girl who wants to attend. Next up, we will welcome campers to our C-Suite Virtual Camp. With your loyal support, we can continue to serve girls worldwide, and close The Imagination Gap. Thank you for your support!
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!
