What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

For girls and young women from lower socioeconomic status, the impacts of the intersectional inequalities of gender, race, ethnicity, and class can hinder identification with long-term participation in STEM. Latina, Black, and Indigenous women represent less than 10% of the overall STEM workforce. With STEM jobs (in science, technology, engineering and math) expanding at an accelerated pace, there is high demand for skilled graduates. TCGC is creating a network of learning opportunities to help inspire and grow the next generation of female STEM leaders to create equity and close the gap. Our activities are designed to: -Enhance and expand STEM awareness, educational offerings, and extra-curricular opportunities. -Obtain grants to support STEM education, enrichment and professional development. -Promote connections between STEM education and career opportunities. -Create a strong network of STEM educators, professionals, and other nonprofit partners to increase our impact.

-Discover what it's like to be a scientist through creative exploration
-Learn new skills mixing technology and design in areas such as robotics, coding, and more
-Explore creative and collaborative hands-on projects in architecture and design

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Treasure Coast Girls Coalition is dedicated to engaging and empowering the lives of girls ages 9-18 who are from economically disadvantaged communities, attend Title I schools and live at or below the 200% poverty threshold.

Our vision is to provide opportunities for girls to engage and work together in planning
and and participating in community projects, developing responsibility, bonding, and bridging social capital.

Our Social and Emotional Intelligence learning curriculum and model were born out of a growing need for time out of school to address students’ needs beyond academics. To help respond to these demands with a modern approach, TCGC is a collaborative community partner and is trailblazing ways to help school professionals—especially those contending with emotionally dysregulated students, increases in mental health diagnoses such as ADHD, mounting student suspension and expulsion rates, and declining academic achievement. With the sudden and prolonged onset of COVID-19, it is reasonable to see this event alone as a cause for deep concern and to take proactive measures to mitigate trauma and toxic stress. The purpose of this component woven into the program must be equipped with experienced, qualified, and committed staff and volunteer mentors to provide nourishment, safety, structure, and social and emotional support for our students.
