“GEN’s programming is absolutely critical. I have so many girls that I’ve taught and if somebody could’ve stepped in and given them that extra boost, it would’ve really altered the course of things.”
– Austin ISD teacher and mother of a clubGEN participant

  • Modules may be customized to fit what you need
  • Can be facilitated from between 1 – 20 sessions on your campus

Parent Education:

We stay connected to the parents of the girls we serve through regular phone calls, closed social media groups, email, and campus-based meetings.  We get parents to visit the school campus and engage in their child’s learning.
