The mission of organization is to empower young ladies to become leaders by building confidence, character, and leadership skills to prepare them for college, careers, and life. We serve a little over 200 girls per year in the State of Florid and South Georgia, with most of our services being provided in Tallahassee, Florida.

We are getting geared up for our STEM Leadership Program for the Fall of 2018 that serves at-promise girls in disadvantaged schools and areas. The STEM Leadership program introduces girls to STEM fields to increase their interest, while providing training to develop their leadership skills such as networking, professional communication, confidence-building and more. The girls in the program are taken on field trips to local universities for STEM days, Engineering panel sessions, and to meet other female college students in STEM fields. The program also offers guest speakers who talk to the girls about their professions in STEM and why it's so important for women and minorities to be involved in STEM careers. Once the program has ended, girls are job-ready, more confident, and 46% of them decide to go into a STEM career. Our recent success story is of one of our graduates who was recently accepted to Harvard University to study computer science, and she received the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation scholarship to fund her education. She entered in our program not knowing what she wanted to do specifically. After learning hands-on coding, IT training, and leadership skills, she grew an interest in computer science. We took her to STEM competitions and trained her on how to compete. Her confidence level increased and the rest is history. She attributes much of her success to our program.
