Summary

Your donation funds supplies for educators to implement Career Girls Club. In this free, 20-week school-based club, girls develop a greater understanding of career possibilities and the soft skills required for success. In each weekly session, girls explore topics and themes that pair Career Girls role model videos with a discussion-based curriculum and corresponding group activities. Your donation helps girls spark an early interest in designing their future and achieving their dreams.

Challenge

Schools in the U.S. are underfunded by almost $150 billion annually.* The lack of adequate funding and resources makes it challenging for educators to provide high-quality programs of this type. In this context, it is critical to reach students at an early age to help them understand the link between doing well in school and how building on their academic achievements will allow them to shape their future. *The Century Foundation, Closing America's Education Funding Gaps, July 22, 2020.

Solution

Participation in a Career Girls Club provides girls with a supportive community to explore careers and learn essential soft skills required for success, such as teamwork, leadership, confidence, and integrity. By making Career Girls Club free to schools, we ensure that no girl is left out.

Long-Term Impact

This project directly enhances girls' opportunities to enter the workforce prepared to succeed. The results are higher incomes, higher living standards for women and their families, and stronger, more inclusive solutions to address our world's critical challenges.
