Mission

Friends of GALA aims to close the economic and gender disparities that exist within STEM fields today by removing interpersonal, academic and financial barriers for all girls who attend Girls Academic Leadership Academy, the only public all-girl STEM school in Los Angeles, and in the state of California. We support over 700 girls each year in grades 6-12; our school is made up of 65% students of color; we have 100% AP enrollment, and 100% college acceptance. Your giving provides critical financial support for forward-thinking, high-quality programs for GALA students. These include STEM-focused educational programs, technology resources, college readiness, operations and community support each student needs to build confidence to pursue degrees and careers in STEM.
