Girls Action Network, Inc. ("GAN") is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 11 and up—with special emphasis on those from underserved communities—become the best they can be. Through participation in innovative learning experiences with particular focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), self-awareness assessments, educational activities and mentoring, GAN encourages girls to shatter the stereotypes that limit their career options and enables them to explore their opportunities and guide their own direction toward vocational and personal success.
GAN works in several ways:
- administering comprehensive technology-based and human-facilitated instruments to assess the vocational aspirations, skills and abilities of GAN participants; helping each girl develop her individual educational and career plan;
- nurturing the GAN Champion for Empowerment and Opportunity® mentors ("CEOs") network;
- collaborating with partner/affiliate organizations and programs in which GAN girls can participate to broaden their cultural, educational and vocational awareness.
