About Us

Science Club for Girls (SCFG) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster excitement, confidence and literacy in STEM for girls in grades K-12, particularly from underrepresented communities, by providing free, experiential programs and by maximizing meaningful interactions with women mentors in science, technology, engineering & mathematics. In 19 sites in six cities, girls work with mentor-scientists who model and foster leadership, affirm college as an expectation, and promote careers in STEM as goals and options. We target girls from resource-poor communities who may be first in their family to attend college, and we embrace a near-peer mentoring approach that engages women and girls across generations and academic/career stages to create a network of support for their mutual advancement. 

 

Our staff of 12 people is comprised of a dedicated team of independent thinkers and excellent communicators, each with their own strengths to share with the group — from engineering to environmental science, from youth development to team leadership building skills. We seek skilled, flexible, and motivated team players who have a passion for changing the face of STEM and want to contribute to and learn from our team and the girls and young women we serve.
