We have a long established brand of delivering vital educational programs that inspire girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
Our approach is integrated, positive, and developmentally appropriate. Going against the deficit model which bombards girls with what not to do, we encourage girls to say yes to exciting challenges, growth-encouraging risks, and valuable new experiences.
We work to improve girls’ lives beyond academic achievement. Our programs are designed to improve girls’ emotional development by challenging them to discover their full potential.
