Stella’s Girls Maryland provides mentoring, coding programs, workshops, and an annual youth conference for the young people of Maryland. Stella’s Girls believes that training girls in low-income communities on the importance of STEAM will encourage more females to take an active interest in becoming STEAM professionals.
We seek to ensure that all women and girls, aged 12-30 years, have access to adequate and affordable education. We empower the young women who we work with to value their entire selves and to appreciate the gifts they bring to the world. We work with them in discovering and developing their inherent strengths, as leaders and as females. We look toward the future as these young women and the volunteers that work with them become those leaders. These young women continuously teach friends, families, and members of their communities what they have learned. They educate other women on how to feel worthy and become advocates for other girls and women. They become leaders.
It is here that girls learn to value their entire selves, discover and develop their natural strengths, and get the support they need to overcome the challenges they face. Stella’s Girls programs are provided to girls living in vulnerable populations across Africa, programs for girls in Maryland, and free mentors and tutors for youth around the country.
