Our goal is to reach ONE MILLION GIRLS* by 2030 by reaching educators and advocating to eliminate the barriers girls face to persist in STEM.

We equip and galvanize gatekeepers – out-of-school time (OST) educators and STEM professionals – with gender responsive, culturally relevant curriculum and equity training that empowers them to act as an advocate for BIPOC girls* pursuing their STEM aspirations.

Equipping Educators

Educators and STEM professionals serve as STEM gatekeepers, with the power to disrupt inequitable systems and pave the way for the next generation of STEM leaders. Through our equity curriculum and training, we equip gatekeepers to create an inclusive, safe space where girls* gain a sense of belonging, build their knowledge, and can bring their whole selves to STEM exploration.

Advocacy & Awareness

With a focus on dismantling systemic and structural barriers, our advocacy efforts center BIPOC girls* experiences in making broad-based systems change. We build awareness of and advocate for practices and systems that support girls*’ STEM persistence, and amplify the voices of educators and BIPOC girls* from marginalized communities.

Our Reach

In the last five years, Techbridge Girls has grown significantly through national partnerships and our Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) network. Our national footprint enables us to serve up to 25K girls annually with our eye on a million in 10 years.

From Our Community

The U.S. Department of Education and the Women's Sports Foundation (WSF) hosted a 'Title IX 50th Anniversary Field Day' for Washington D.C. and Baltimore-area students (ages 8 – 14 years old) to try new STEM activities, play new sports, hear from champion athletes and leaders, and learn how Title IX impacts their lives. The event’s interactive stations featured soccer, running, basketball and STEM stations. The soccer station included Gaby Vincent, midfielder for the Washington Spirit, and the basketball drills were led by Howard University’s women’s and men’s basketball team. The STEM activities were led by Techbridge Girls and the Smithsonian Science Education Center. STEM activities included making sports drinks!
#GirlsLeadSTEM represents a collective, multi-sector effort to address these persistent disparities. #GirlsLeadSTEM will tap our most valuable stakeholders - the girls themselves - who will illuminate what’s still needed to ensure persistence in their STEM journey. This national effort will elevate the voices of young women and girls in STEM to transform the overused narratives in the space and celebrate the girls who lead their own STEM journeys, in their own voices, with their own communities and on their own terms.
Techbridge Girls (TBG) serves Black, Indigenous, and all girls of color, which includes cis girls, trans youth, gender non-conforming, and/or non-binary youth who experience(d) girlhood and economic insecurity as a part of their journey.
