Girls Incorporated of New York City
March 31, 2011
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.
