The NGCP Program Directory has moved to The Connectory! 

The Connectory Logo

The Connectory, operated and managed by the National Girls Collaborative, is the largest directory of youth-serving STEM programs and opportunities. This database, containing thousands of programs, makes it simple for organizations to connect with one another, is navigable by caregivers looking for youth STEM opportunities, and offers enhanced functionality through local and national partnerships.

The Connectory serves as the place for programs to network, share resources, and collaborate on STEM-related projects. From the Provider Portal, you can search for programs based on collaboration interests, location, and resources available or needed.

Programs are also encouraged to input their youth-serving STEM opportunities, such as one-time events, summer camps, afterschool and ongoing programming. By adding your time bound opportunities, families visiting the directory will be able to easily connect to your upcoming offerings. It is free and easy to join The Connectory. Begin by registering on the Provider Portal

Still more, programs can take advantage of national partnerships forged with The Connectory. One such example is the innovative website integration with VolunteerMatch, where programs can create a VolunteerMatch account through The Connectory, and then link the two accounts for greater visibility of their volunteer opportunities. The Connectory is also working on groundbreaking collaborations with local and regional STEM networks, to provide customized, local onramps to our expansive national database.

If you had a program listed on the Program Directory, it is now live on the new directory and you can access it by logging into The Connectory here:
