The STEM Circle is designed to ENHANCE our girls understanding of STEM fields beyond the typical search engine research. Within our circle, we will ENCOURAGE the girls to take charge of their future careers through culturally relevant conversations, personalized self-paced projects, and ENGAGE in community initiatives designed by women of color in STEM. Our girls will be EXPOSED to powerful, educated, successful women that have learned out how to take life's lemons and #makeLEMONADE.

The Literacy Circle is designed to ENGAGE participants in an array of conversations by EXPLORING a variety of literary works, particularly those written by and about women of color.  Within our circle, we will also analyze artwork and participate in community projects that highlight the importance of ELEVATING the Black voice through art. We aim to EMPOWER our girls by EXPOSING them to experiences that will allow them #makeLEMONADE.

The Mental Health Circle is designed to ERASE the stigma of mental health by EDUCATING young women of color on the importance of maintaining mental well-being to promote a healthy, balanced, and productive life.

All of these strategies will EMPOWER our girls to #makeLEMONADE.
