Voice Cares is a new feature highlighting the work of our community’s hardworking non-profit organizations. We encourage you to support them.
The Society of Extraordinary Women’s mission is to empower teenage girls to discover their extraordinary selves through education, and mentoring for a lifetime.
Our premier program is the Ignite Leadership and STEM Academy for Girls. This program provides specific skills that support personal and academic success. The skills taught in our uniquely designed program focuses on enhancing the development of the total person.
Our leadership module emphasizes on building personal esteem, teamwork, goal setting, social, and cyber etiquette, financial literacy, community engagement, and preparation for college and careers. Students also have the choice to partake in one of our several elective activities such as creative arts, aviation, and exploratory field trips.
Through a collaboration with the Mapping Black California Initative, and Esri, a world leader in technology worldwide, we are able to provide a comprehensive STEM program in GIS technology which includes robotics, community mapping, special analytics, and coding. The classes provide critical thinking skills that allow our students to develop applications that provide change in their communities or the world.
We work to have a lasting impact on the lives of girls in our local region, but we are not satisfied. Statistics tells us that the need is great, and we see it firsthand. In this age of globalization and technology, it is critical that we prepare our students to become great leaders, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and innovators prepared to take their role in this new and evolving global market place.
