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…” As an organization, we’ve seen girls flourish and open up during our all-female Camps & Clubs. 

 

Girls join beginning in first grade and ascend different levels through eighth grade. Upon completing, they are eligible to attend Ready by 21's leadership training for peer-mentoring younger girls.

Camp-Ella is a one week summer camp designed to build confidence, create childhood memories and life long friendships.

·Club-Ella is a school- year club that introduces girls to entrepreneurship and leadership. Recreation including excursions, sports, celebrations and mentors with the goal of establishing life-long connections.

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.
