VIL Girls STEM Program

Free year-long STEM enrichment program for girls in grades 6-8.

Every young girl deserves access to a better future. That's why we've launched the Verizon Innovative Learning program for rural young women - an engaging year-long program where they'll learn design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality, and social entrepreneurship. Designed to create a more diverse pipeline for future careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) fields; no prior knowledge or experience is required.

Program Details:

  • Program will take place in person, virtually, or as a hybrid of both. Registrants will be notified by program director after April 15th. 
  • Lunch and transportation will be provided during summer camp (if in person).
  • Available to students who otherwise do not have access to these types of programs. 
  • Program is inclusive and welcomes all genders and non-binary youth.
  • Participating students will receive a table for the duration of the program. 
  • Free for students.
