Over 200 middle and high school girls and young women from across NYC attended the event. 32 schools and organizations represented, including local/regional community colleges, CUNYs and SUNYs and Ivies. 👩🏾🎓🎓🎖 The nine STARS partners - Girls Write Now, Groundswell, Lower Eastside Girls Club, PowerPlay NYC, Row New York, Sadie Nash Leadership Project, The Armory Foundation, Figure Skating in Harlem and Girls for Gender Equity - all leaders in the out-of-school-time space, create thousands of program slots and deepen programming for girls in all five boroughs.
