We invest in our girls on and off the field to find their voice and passion. Our coaches work with our participants at leadership events and conferences to encourage our players to become leaders in careers in STEM- science, technology, engineering, math and philanthropy and sports.
We inspire our girls to influence the world!
Our curriculum has been developed over the years to incorporate lessons of leadership and character into our soccer practices, camps, and events. Additionally we collaborate with other organizations like World Wide Women, the Friends of the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Alliance for Girls to provide opportunities for our girls to attend conferences, workshops, and festivals all devoted to the empowerment of women leaders.
We host annual Career Talks in which we invite female guest speakers from the community that are in STEM-S (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Sports) careers to speak to the girls about various career options and motivate them to become leaders in male dominated fields. Guests include PG&E legal counsel, PG&E high speed rail project, Facebook, Google, Present, Airbnb, Girls in Tech, and more!
Junior Advisory Board & Junior Coaching
As part of our mission to train girls to become leaders we provide a practicum opportunity through our Junior Advisory Board of Directors and Junior Coaching programs. A group of 10-15 girls in our program are selected by their peers every year to serve as our Advisory Board learning the ins and outs of a non-profit while also helping to make important decisions on the direction of our programs. The Junior Coaches (JC) program is designed to train and mentor High School students to learn how to become a coach. We provide female role models for our players and JC's to serve as mentors and give back to the game for the younger generations.
If you are interested in becoming a Junior Coach email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you an application. The commitment is one practice a week and monthly leadership workshops. The program length is for one season working with the same team during that time. This is a great opportunity for High School students to gain job training and practical use of their skills that can all be credited towards community service hours.
Your support helps to grow tomorrow's leaders today!
