Most girls lose interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) between grades 5-8.  Girls, in particular, lack the confidence and self-esteem to pursue STEM.  Exposing girls early to STEM careers and providing them with confidence, mentoring, and business skills before high school is critical to providing a gender-balanced workforce.   In partnership with a Million Women Mentors, Salem Community College, Learning Blade, and others, A Girl’s Word, Inc. is a program that focuses on young women entering 7th, 8th, and 9th grades in Salem and Cumberland Counties, NJ.  A Girl’s World seeks to help these young women to:

  • build confidence and self-esteem
  • develop long-term skills
  • pursue and be successful in their future career goals
  • seek careers in STEM

These objectives will be accomplished through the students’ participation in a 3-year program that includes education and mentoring.  The program includes:

  • a 2-week summer camp
  • courses in things like leadership, entrepreneurship, teamwork, etc.
  • exploring career options
  • developing and working on a business project
  • participation in a community service project
