The NexGeneGirls Program consists of:
NexGeneGirls Spring Bootcamp – 2 Saturdays in spring to prepare participants for summer internships
NexGeneGirls Summer Science Academy – 8-week program consisting of:
- Research Internship in a Bay Area industry or academic lab: NexGeneGirl interns work closely with an industry mentor on a science project, which they present at the NexGeneGirls Summer Celebration in August.
- Leadership Development and College Prep: Workshops and networking events to help NexGeneGirl participants explore various careers in science and access helpful career navigation tools, such as resume-building, financial literacy, and more. NexGeneGirls also participate in college mentoring sessions with undergraduate women of color to help them prepare their academic portfolio.
- Community Science: NexGeneGirls lead fun hands-on science labs for elementary- and middle-school students of color to expose them to science
The NexGeneGirls Science Sisterhood continues throughout the school year and beyond to support NexGeneGirls in exploring and defining their educational and career goals.
