Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. Of this percentage, only 5% are women of color. This is the result of few dedicated programs developing pathways for girls of color as young as high school.
Girls Global Academy is the premier training ground for high school girls in the areas of global citizenship, Business and Engineering in Washington, DC. At Girls Global Academy, we provide a global education that ignites empowerment and develops the confidence to influence change for global benefit. We close the gender and racial STEM gaps by providing pathways for our girls to see what's possible and have the tools to make it a reality.
If you believe girls matter, join us!
Your gift to the Four Pillars Fund will empower girls to navigate the world with confidence and compassion, succeed in any path they may choose, serve as lifelong ambassadors for change, and practice mindfulness and compassion with themselves and others.
Like all DC charter schools, we receive government funding to provide a quality education to all of our girls. However, to develop equitable pathways to entrepreneurship and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math for girls of color, we rely on the generosity of supporters like you. Your gift to Girls Global Academy fulfills our promise of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Service, and Safety.
