NGCP is an implementation partner of the Million Girls Moonshot (MGM), a movement striving to inspire and prepare the next generation of innovators by engaging one million more girls in STEM learning through afterschool and summer programs. The Million Girls Moonshot is funded by the STEM Next Opportunity Fund.
In this work, NGCP focuses on building the capacity of statewide afterschool networks and programs to provide equitable and inclusive STEM learning opportunities. Over the course of this partnership, NGCP and MGM have collaborated to:
- Develop the Access to STEM Framework, which is the foundation for all NGCP’s MGM activities, to ensure its accessibility and relevance for all statewide afterschool networks.
- Provide 23 professional development workshops for statewide afterschool networks and programs across the United States, presenting research-based strategies and resources related to engaging girls in STEM, countering STEM stereotypes, increasing STEM career awareness, and integrating diverse STEM role models into programming.
