We recognize the importance of celebrating girls who are beating the odds, breaking stereotypes, and leading as positive role models for all youth throughout New York City.
Since 1999, we have honored outstanding college-bound students through our annual College Shower.
2023 College Shower Honorees
Our college preparation program helps high school juniors and seniors navigate the college application process, financial aid, college living, and enrollment. Students also have opportunities to engage in speed networking, mock interviews, and resume reviews with professionals, and each year, they participate in a special roundtable event that features numerous college and career-related workshops.
Students enrolled in our college preparation program can apply to be one of 25 honorees at the annual Lifting Girls Up Gala and College Shower event. Student honorees will announce their college acceptances and receive scholarships and supplies on stage.
Every year, we produce a film featuring the College Shower student honorees.
