The National Girls Collaborative Project operates on a global basis as the Global Girls Collaborative Project. Regions and countries act as hubs for local programs coordinating resources and reaching girl-serving stem programs in their communities.
  • Learn about the programs in your area and how you can participate.
  • Stay current on girl-serving STEM activities in your region.

Global Collaboratives: 

Connect With Programs

The Connectory, operated and managed by the National Girls Collaborative, was developed so parents and other caregivers could find local STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education opportunities for the kids in their lives. It was also created with program providers in mind, providing the means for discovering new partners as well as ways to showcase the STEAM opportunities that providers are offering for youth. It's free to use!

  • Search for organizations or programs to network, share resources, and collaborate with.
