Growing Stem for Girls in The Garden State   


Kickoff Event is Full To Capacity!

Registration is Closed

April 18th, 2012

The vision of the National Girls Collaborative Project is to bring together organizations throughout the United States that are committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The National Girls Collaborative Project maximizes access to shared resources and disseminates research-based promising practices that advance the work of existing and evolving girl-serving projects. The goals are to:

  • Strengthen the capacity of girl-serving STEM programs to effectively reach and serve underrepresented girls in STEM by sharing promising practice research and program models, outcomes, and products.
  • Increase the effectiveness of Collaboratives by providing professional development focused on sustainability, organizational effectiveness, and shared leadership to more effectively deliver services to girl-serving STEM organizations.
  • Maximize K-12 school counselors’ access to and use of relevant, high-quality resources that increase awareness of barriers to girls’ interest and engagement in STEM.

NJSACC: The Network for NJ’s Afterschool Communities is proud to be the convening agency for the Garden State Girls STEM Collaborative.

We will bring together organizations and individuals that are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to encourage collaboration and improve inter-program communication.

Our goal is to strengthen capacity, increase continuation of girl-serving STEM programs and create a wider audience for gender-related STEM issues.

This project, funded by the National Science Foundation and administered by the Garden State Girls STEM Collaborative, offers the chance for schools, informal educators, programs that offer expanded learning opportunities, business and industry that are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue classes and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to come together to share best practices, develop new collaborations, and share resources.

The successful career transition of students and the economic future of
New Jersey are tied to increased participation of all students in careers that rely on STEM skills and competencies.
Mini-grants may be available to organizations that collaborate in the development and delivery of programming that share this vision.
