Girls + Data

A mission of increasing data literacy at a younger age and providing middle school girls with hands-on learning opportunities in STEM careers in data analytics.


Ignited is on a mission to connect underserved students to their future careers.

We do that by helping companies and foundations collaborate more effectively with teachers in K-12 schools, community colleges, and universities.

Imagine Science

Imagine Science is a collaboration of four leading national youth organizations (Boys & Girls Club, the Y, National 4-H Council, girls, inc) formed to bridge the STEM gap by igniting the imaginations of historically under-represented youth. We believe that prolonged, informal exposure to STEM increases a child's interest and builds a foundation for proficiency through high school and beyond.

We strategically aligned our STEM priorities and invested in the creation of a national network of Innovation Sites that partner with one another to share curricula, training, data and other assets in unprecedented ways in order to engage more under-represented youth and identify best practices.
