According to the National Education Association, “Girls who learn in all-girl environments are believed to be more comfortable responding to questions and sharing their opinions…” Our organization has observed that girls flourish and become more open during our all-female Camps & Clubs.

Ella-Connection is administered on school-campuses with the ultimate goal of meeting girls where they are both physically and emotionally, and connecting them with a supportive community.

 

Camp-Ella is a one-week summer camp structured to foster confidence, create cherished childhood memories, and cultivate lifelong friendships. Leadership training is seamlessly integrated into the camp experience facilitated by accomplished high school and college students, and experienced mentors. 

 

Club-Ella is a school-year club where girls join as early as first grade and progress different levels through their educational journey. Six-week cycles allow girls to join anytime throughout the year.

Inspiring women to empower girls!

The Ella-Network introduces girls to entrepreneurship and leadership by exposing them to women in  business and various career fields.

  • Monthly Workshops covering topics such as financial literacy, time management, and public speaking, equipping girls with practical life skills.

  • Quarterly Networking Events allow girls the opportunity to connect with professionals in their community, expanding their network and gaining insights into different career paths.

  • Ongoing Community Involvement in community service projects and volunteer opportunities, fostering a sense of responsibility and civic engagement.

  • College tours, and recreational opportunities including attending plays and performances.

Character Development

through reading literacy

Reading is the foundation of all learning and knowledge.

​Children in foster care lag significantly behind their peers in reading, writing, numeracy, and language and perform significantly worse on measures of academic and socioemotional adjustment compared to children from low socioeconomic backgrounds. (Mitic & Rimer, 2002)

​​

​Program Philosophy:

As children read out-loud to mentors they build confidence and connection.  The curriculum focuses on character development and dramatic play. At the end of their time together, children visit their "little library house" to select level-appropriate books to take home.
