Girls Action Network, Inc. ("GAN") is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping middle and high school girls—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's long-term goals are to empower girls to shatter stereotypes and expand their opportunities through programs and services that can be replicated where there is a need. We aim to develop a diverse pool of human capital and motivated leaders for corporations, civic organizations and the community. Moreover, given the many outstanding and existing organizations whose missions serve at cross-sections to its efforts, GAN strives to serve as the connector among them, focusing on collaborative partnerships and associations.
