Empowering girls to be STEM 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 STEM 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 announce new multi-year partnerships with The Tech Museum of Innovation and Technovation to engage girls in our community with innovative STEM education and programs.  This includes a $100,000 grant and volunteer support to launch Girls Day at The Tech and The Tech Challenge mentorship program.

In the news: The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) profiled our new focus area in their Connected newsletter (Aug. 23, 2016). Read the article here.
