GC4W launch the E-School for Girls Program in partnership with NYU CAC and NYCPromise

E-School for Girls

The Global Connections for Women Foundation (GC4W) launch the Entrepreneurship School for Girls Program (E-School for Girls) in collaboration with NYU CAC, NYCPromise and NYU.

The NYU College Advising Corps (NYU CAC) aims to increase the number of low-income, first-generation, underrepresented high school students to enter and complete their higher educationNYCPromise works with key NYC students at both middle and high school levels to provide a new and exciting opportunities to further their education and take positions in the STEM fields.

The Global Connections for Women Foundation is an international organization that believes in women and girls – and their rights to create new opportunities for themselves and their communities. Last summer (August, 2014), GC4W co-sposored 30 high school girls from rural parts of South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe to participate in a one week “STEM-IT Forward Expo” in Johannesburg, South Africa, a program created by Tanguana. Taungana aims to provide high school girls from rural and disadvantaged communities with world class access and exposure to education and career options in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).


“Education is the key to success for so many kids. And my goal specifically is to reach out directly to young people and encourage them to take charge of their futures and complete an education beyond high school.” – First Lady Michelle Obam

With recent international programs and initiatives to support the education of young girls led by the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS), Michelle Obama and USAID through the #LetGirlsLearn and #ReachHigher, through the E-School for Girls summer program, GC4W and our partners plans to provide high school juniors and seniors with a first class opportunity to advance their educational experience and to ultimately raise the number of women entrepreneurs in our society.

With the E-School for Girls Summer Program – after a rigorous application process, a group of 30 girls are selected to participate in a 2weeks summer program that runs from July 10th – July 24th, 2015 at the NYU campus. The E-School for Girls Summer Program hopes to provide the 30 girls from inner city schools with an opportunity to train and learn from founders and CEOs – and to inspire them with their stories. The girls will also be challenged to create their first business venture and provided with the tools to potentially launch their enterprise idea. A pitch event will be held on the last day of the summer program and the girls will be tasked with pitching their business ideas to a panel of judges.
