Mission: Nerdy Girl Success™ is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works with high school girls teaching them new skills, providing necessary resources and helping build their network of women in leadership to educate and encourage them in the pursuit of their career leadership goals . The purpose of our programs is to help girls understand the power and importance of their voice and how to use it to affect the change they wish to see in their own lives as well as that of their communities. Part of our curriculum focuses on introducing the girls to diverse career women who are leading across all industries. These careers are not only the ones that the girls express an interest in but also those not typically introduced to girls, like the trades for example. The other part of our curriculum focuses on teaching them the soft skills that are necessary for success in school, career and life. Some examples include networking, investing and negotiation skills.

Results: Since being founded in 2018, we have served over 300 girls to present day. We have gone from doing programs locally (Houston area) to providing programing for girls across the country. Girls who have been involved in our programs have: - been accepted into business mentoring programs - gone out for, accepted and/or been awarded leadership positions - creating goals and action plans for those goals.

As Program Director for Nerdy Girl Success, it’s been a blessing to see first hand how the organization is impacting the lives of so many girls. Nerdy Girl is providing high school girls across the country with access and exposure to career prep resources and career women from all walks of life, in both traditional and non traditional careers for women. This is Nerdy Girl’s goal and one I feel is very important for high school girls who are in a prime developmental stage in life and are eager to figure out themselves and their goals. Nerdy Girl is right there to empower these girls on their journeys through a variety of programs such as the teen advisory board, high school clubs, career and leadership summits, workshops on soft/hard skills etc. Nerdy Girl is doing something so unique for the girls and something a lot of women wished we had the opportunity to experience while growing up. So, I am very proud and grateful to be a part of such a pace setter organization.

Christina and Nerdy Girl Success are TRULY making an impact in the lives of young women. They're not just "talking" about what needs to be done but actually covering topics too often overlooked and making connections for the young women. They bring the women and resources to their members to make things happen. With so many non profits out there it can be difficult to know which ones are putting their money where their mouth is. I support Nerdy Girl Success because I can see the transformations that are taking place in the lives of young women.

I was able to share with teenage girls on a panel regarding Why Failure is an Option. I feel this type of information is vital to so many of our young girls and I am so happy there is an organization like Nerdy Girl who is willing to invest in our young girls lives. I love all that Nerdy Girl Success stands for.

As Career Coordinator for a public high school, I am so delighted to promote Nerdy Girl Success programs to our students. The level of professionalism and enthusiasm in each offering is inspiring. It is a pleasure to collaborate with Christina Meade as her passion is always evident. Our students have thoroughly enjoyed their participation in Nerdy Girl events. Now more than ever, this type of exploration is so beneficial for our teens. Thank you, Nerdy Girl Success for inspiring our professional women of tomorrow!

I gave a presentation on sales writing for the Summer Business Camp for Girls with Christina, and it was an amazing experience. The girls were enthusiastic and responsive, and I was blown away by the sales scripts and copy they wrote to promote the fundraiser they were working on. It was a pleasure to be part of that project, and the communication was excellent so I had the right material prepared, and we ran on schedule.

I was just speaking with a successful startup founder (multiple high-value exits) and mentor/investor about how skills in confidence, vocabulary, operations and leadership for female founders should start in high school. Of course I thought of Nerdy Girl Success, which is the only non-profit I've found who does such a beautiful job raising the level of awareness and competence that our young women need. I'm proud to have volunteered with this organization and will do anything I can to support initiatives that begin this learning for women in their teen years. Foundations lead to impact that will change the entire world.

I have been volunteering for Nerdy Girl Success for some time now and each time I feel that not only do I get to teach or give something but I get back a ton of value in return. The girls that go through this program are so inspiring and I’m glad that this organization exists to be a place of guidance and support to them!
