The future belongs to she who creates it.
A new project designed with girls of color at the center, SheLectricity is a girls' empowerment ecosystem that brings together technology, culture, and community to create safe and nurturing online and in-person environments for girls to learn, grow, innovate, and lead. Through interactive online tools and in-person experiences, SheLectricity girls engage in Creativity, Personal Development, STEAM-based learning, Entrepreneurship, and Network Building.
In September 2018, the NoVo Foundation awarded SheLectricity a 3-year grant for $450,000 to “SEED FUND” the design, build, and launch in our first 3 hub cities - Oakland, Los Angeles, and Memphis - in Fall 2019. SheLectricity is intended to scale over time to reach all girls in this country who need safe and nurturing online and in-person experiences, relationships, and support in order to learn, grow, innovate, and lead.
