A gathering place for self-directed exploration, discovery, and authentic connections.
Our programs inspire girls to become independent thinkers and problem-solvers by allowing them to make choices about how they interact with the world around them. With the space to explore who they are, girls gain confidence in facing the demands of an ever-changing world.
By offering choices and self-directed opportunities, girls are able to make decisions about how and where they gain knowledge and can explore topics that interest them through collaboration with their peers.
Gender equality can only be reached if girls are confident in who they are, passionate about making change, and active members of society. We showcase girls' talents and interests so they can pursue their goals in a positive and supportive space.
