For Schools/Community Leaders
The Camp G.O.A.L.S. for Girls program prides itself in encouraging the participation of female students from high-needs/low income neighborhoods that attend New York City schools, especially Title I public schools. There are many 8th and 9th grade girls with outstanding potential in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields; however, they many need additional guidance and encouragement to achieve academic and social success.
We would like teachers, schools administrators, and community leaders to help us to provide such students with the opportunity to expand their scientific knowledge and skills by participating in the application process.
Our recruitment goals are to encourage interest in math and science among ALL girls. We are seeking campers to represent girls of all learning styles. This program will greatly appeal to those students who already have a passion for science and math and will spark new interest for those who currently struggle in these subject areas. This program offers a wonderful opportunity for students to strengthen their academic and leadership skills so they will return to school in the fall with a new sense of confidence.
