Girls Fly! is an empowerment program that encourages women and girls from all age groups and all walks of life to pursue a wide range of personal and professional aspirations through presentations, mentoring, and interactive experiences. Girls Fly! emboldens women and girls to experience the power of their dreams through Girls Fly! community events tailored to specific locations, and also through Girls Fly! with science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) activities. Girls Fly! experiences and Girls Fly! with STEAM help girls to make the connection between their dreams and the necessity of staying in school.
Girls Fly! provides a safe space for girls to believe that they can achieve. All venue hosts, referred to as Dream Releasers, are notified of a Girls Fly! Participant’s personal needs to assure her successful experience, (e.g., (a) Communication instruction – sign language interpreter, large print, Braille, device to playback verbal instructions for girls who might have print challenges; (b) Arts: tables of variable heights to accommodate girls who might be little people, use wheelchairs, microwave and microwavable containers). Please note that these are examples and not intended to be an exhaustive list. Across all aspects of the Girls Fly! experiences, advanced notice of reasonable accommodations needs will ensure inclusion of girls across a broad spectrum of ability and skill levels.
