Girl Power’s Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp
Preparing Girls for the Workforce of the Future
The Girl Power Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp is a summer of learning, growth and positive change for our girls' future! We empower them through education and arm them with the confidence to know that they are in charge of their future.
Our Girl Power Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp incorporates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) to develop creativity, build problem-solving skills, confidence, and collaboration. Our curriculum allows girls to learn valuable skills to give them a leg up when entering the workforce. STEAM training, along with the workforce skills taught throughout the summer, gives girls who come from low-income families the opportunity to pursue careers in high-demand, and high-paying fields.
STEAM is a new way of learning that develops useful skills with real-world applications, which is why we are so excited to incorporate workforce training into our STEAM Camp to give girls a well-rounded education. The institute for arts integration and STEAM describes STEAM's benefits as "guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking." These are all useful skills girls will develop during the Girl Power Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp.
Girl Power's Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp Goes Virtual!
Virtual learning now allows us to bring exciting Science and Technology activities infused with the arts to young minds! We will be meeting through Zoom and Dojo programs, so we are still able to teach and engage in discussions. We will be working with software like WordPress to get the girls familiar with programs that can be an advantage when entering the workforce.

Science, technology, engineering, and math are the fastest-growing sectors, with the most high-paying employment opportunities in low-and-middle-income economies. Despite this growth, the Council on Foreign Relations reported that women hold less than 30% of jobs in STEAM.
Girl Power serves girls who come from mostly low-income communities. By providing them with hands-on training in STEAM disciplines, as well as offering workforce training experience, we will be helping to level the playing field for secondary education and career growth for these young women. We hope to encourage girls to explore STEAM careers by teaching them workforce readiness skills online through resume building, interviewing, and soft work skills. Empowering young women to pursue their dreams and earn their highest potential income helps to not only uplift individuals but, in addition, their families and communities.
Why is STEAM Important for Girls?
What Makes the Girl Power Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp Special?
Girl Power's Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp is a memorable experience because we offer activities using Evidence Based Curriculums to teach Social-Emotional Learning, Health in an interactive way. We also stress the importance of mindfulness and yoga so girls can learn how to channel their emotions in productive and healthy ways.
Throughout this camp, our girls will be exploring their creativity in our Girl Power Hour sessions, where they will engage in fun sessions such as head wrapping, painting, jewelry making and tie-dye. We are also excited about our STEAM projects that will be facilitated to our girls through supply package deliveries with all the materials necessary for the learning activities. Our STEAM activities further enrich these girls by allowing them to understand how STEAM impacts our world and our everyday lives.
A final component of The Girl Power Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp is teaching
entrepreneurship skills to ensure continued success throughout their careers. Girls will learn to manage the finances of a business to have a prosperous career and future. To get a jumpstart on their savings, campers will earn a stipend based on attendance to help them learn the value of money. Thanks to our enriching program and engaged instructors, these lessons will be instilled in our campers through real-world applications and hands-on projects.
In order to participate in the Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp, girls will need a computer with an internet connection and will need to download Zoom video conferencing software. We have laptops available to lend for the duration of the camp if needed.
