After School

After School

"I truly saw confidence grow in my girls when it came to their science skills.”
-Lisa Cantu, Campus Coordinator and 5th grade Teacher at Cooper Elementary 

Club Girlstart is an educational outreach program which encourages girls to believe in themselves, pursue paths to higher education and discover greater career opportunities. Club Girlstart's curriculum enhances girls' STEM learning through relatable, fun, hands-on and comprehensive activities in an all-girls, informal environment. Girlstart After School Participants Score Higher on Science Test: Download the report HERE.
