Thanks to all those who joined us for the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula’s SPARK•INSPIRE•CONNECT Launch Party on October 27, 2015! We were excited about the tremendous turnout of leaders from a wide array of organizations who discovered more about our new community focus: Empowering Girls to be STEAM Leaders of Tomorrow. The rooms of our Gatehouse buzzed with conversations that sparked connections. Our speakers shared stories that stilled the audience. You could see in our guests’ faces – they learned new perspectives, had their own experience validated or became more inspired.  

Thank you for taking time to learn more about the League’s partnerships with The Tech Museum of Innovation and Technovation.

Relive the event by checking out launch photos and our recent press below. 

There are many opportunities to participate:
  • If you are a middle school teacher on the Peninsula, and are interested in mentoring girls in our Technovation project, contact our Technovation Committee.
  • If you are interested in mentoring middle school girls in The Tech Challenge, contact our Tech Challenge Committee.
  • If you are a professional woman in a STEAM field and would like to spend a day mentoring middle school girls at one of our upcoming Girls Day @ The Tech, contact our Girls Day Committee, and mark your calendar: March 13 is the next Girls Day event.
In the spirit of community, the JLPA•MP will continue to share with you upcoming events and activities, opportunities to collaborate, and provide updates on new partnerships and projects dedicated to engaging our local girls in STEAM education and programs.
