Exemplary Practices: Collaboration

NGCP Site Search

Welcome Anonymous


Collaboration, as an interactive process, enables professionals across projects and communities to generate and carry out creative solutions and strategies that maximize benefit beyond what one project or community could accomplish. By creating collaborations among organizations committed to engaging underrepresented girls in STEM, we can improve opportunities by leveraging resources and expertise, sharing effective strategies, and filling gaps without duplicating services.

These practices for collaboration include strategies, curricula, and resources that have research and/or evaluation data to support their effectiveness. The exemplary practices help build the capacity of girl-serving organizations, education, and industry to create effective collaborations.
