Five years ago, we founded the Urban Assembly Institute of Math & Science for Young Women. Our mission is to empower young women through a rigorous, comprehensive, college preparatory curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities. As one of our founding, integrated partnerships, Girls Inc has been a pivotal participant in helping us realize our mission and goals. Together with Girls Inc, we have been able to provide a wide variety of courses and curricula designed to empower our young women through health education, physical education, and STEM courses. Two years ago, we worked collaboratively with Girls Inc to secure 21st century funding that now provides an after school program, rich in course diversity, for all of our young women. This year, we again worked with them to secure funding to extend these programs into our day programming. Without the partnership with Girls Inc, our progress to achieving our school's mission would be greatly diminished. Girls Inc, their mission and their organization, is a perfect match for us and for all of our young women.

Girls Inc has helped the young women in my school stay grounded and focused amidst a society that tells them who to be, how to think, and what to wonder.

Girls Inc is an amazing organization that is in my school! They help us to empower our young women (100% of our population) through sports, the arts, anti-violence campaigns, after-school activities, sex education. college advisement and trips, and so, so much more!

Our school is lucky to
have them as a partner!

My school! They work directly with our students (all girls) on a daily basis - both in school and after-school. They bring amazing opportunities to our young women - our girls have visited the White House, rang the bell at the NY Stock Exchange, participated in charity sporting events. I can't say enough about the women that are in this organization - the are the strongest, the smartest, and the boldest!

Have more Girls Inc staff in the school (we already have A LOT!)...
