Empowering girls to be STEAM leaders of tomorrow

SPARK an idea•INSPIRE the next generation•CONNECT with leaders

The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula is investing in our next generation of female STEAM leaders through strategic grant-making, coalition building and by partnering with local and national nonprofits on projects for direct service, capacity building and advocacy. We are excited to continue our multi-year partnership with The Tech Museum of Innovation and announce a new partnership with Project READ at the Redwood City Public Library.
