Science Club for Girls (SCFG) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to increase the self-confidence and literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) of K-12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in these fields, through free programs that include hands-on learning, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Girls work with mentor-scientists who model and foster leadership, affirm college as an expectation, and promote careers in science and technology as goals and options. Science Club for Girls targets girls from resource-poor communities and who may be first in their family to attend college, and embraces a near-peer mentoring approach that engages women and girls across generations and academic/career stages to create a network of support for their mutual advancement.
