Help us open a new location in Portland!
What the new space will look like:
Work Spaces including Tech Lab and Maker Space
Informal and comfortable work spaces where girls can collaborate;
Computers for research and design;
Maker Space for creative minds to design freely
What programs will be offered:
Homeschoolers can supplement traditional learning with creative activities; girls have autonomy over what topics they can explore.
Drop-in Hours (After school and Saturdays)
Girls are free to create, relax, and socialize in our girl-positive environment.
Rotating academic, life skills, and leadership workshops.
Purpose: Participants believe in the importance of their work.
Essential Skills and Mindsets: Experiences foster competencies that are foundations to innovation in the world (e.g., creative problem solving, critical analysis, communication, collaboration, citizenship, and character).
Agency: Participants create their learning experiences, set their goals, manage their progress, and evaluate their work.
Knowledge (Deep, retained): Participants develop real mastery of the topics they study. They can apply it, ask thoughtful questions about it, and teach others.
You Can Make a Difference
Your donation, however big or small, will help to create a space for girls ages 11-14 where they can gain confidence in themselves, learn to make informed decisions, and become the next generation of leaders and innovators.
