The vision of the NGCP is to bring together organizations throughout the United States that are committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The goals of NGCP are to:
- Maximize access to shared resources within projects, and with public and private sector organizations and institutions interested in expanding girls' participation in STEM.
- Strengthen capacity of existing and evolving projects by sharing exemplary practice research and program models, outcomes, and products.
- Use the leverage of a network and the collaboration of individual girl-serving STEM programs to create the tipping point for gender equity in STEM.
