G2O: Generating Girls' Opportunities
G2O is CWEALF's latest initiative designed to engage girls, parents, and teachers in expanding girls' educational opportunities. The purpose of G2O is to:
Provide programming to encourage girls' enrollment in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in high school and beyond &
Share resources to help guide girls to informed decisions about their educational paths.
“Our school experiences from the day we enter pre-school or kindergarten shape our adult lives. But the special moments, a field trip to the fire station, a handshake from the mayor, and enrichment opportunities like the Girls & STEM Expos expose us to a world outside of school walls and spark sometimes dormant aspirations. Our country can’t afford to waste the talents and skills that women can contribute. Our future physicians, scientists, engineers, astronauts and teachers are sitting in classrooms today and more than 50% of them are girls!”- Devora Epstein, School Counselor at Carmen Arace Middle School in Bloomfield, CT
