Girlstart After School reaches more than 1,300 4th-6th grade girls with free STEM education programs every week throughout the school year at our partner schools.
Girlstart is currently reaching more than 17 districts in Central Texas, as well as ‘to Go’ in Bryan, San Antonio, Waco, and the greater Houston, DFW, and Rio Grande Valley areas. And we aim to grow further! Girlstart is planning to scale Girlstart After School to reach more girls. We encourage you to join the Girlstart movement as a STEM Champion and we'll keep you updated on our #growgirlstart progress, and find out how you may be able to connect us to resources that can help grow Girlstart in your community.
