Girls For Good is a social enterprise to engage girls in the exciting journey to discover, explore, and create sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Sustainability is the crucial intersection between the protecting the environment, advancing society, and developing the economy. Creative sustainability solutions will be found by inspiring the next generation of girls with hands-on experience in science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) focused on changing the world.

Girls for Good partners with elementary schools, parent teacher associations (PTA), and organizations to provide after school programs. Six-to-eight weeklong sessions in the fall, winter, and spring will introduce girls to a broad sustainability curriculum.
