These career exploration programs have been planned in response to girls’ desires to learn more about career options. Activities will introduce girls to women who are ambitious, authentic, and articulate. In addition to these events, wherever possible we strive to utilize female role models and provide girls with opportunities to be motivated by women who illustrate the connection between skills and aptitudes, working hard in school and setting goals.
