Programs for girls (grades one through eight) include after-school one-to-one remedial tutoring in reading and/or math, tutoring in local libraries, and Emerging Leaders, a 4-week summer enrichment program that exposes middle-school-age girls to colleges and careers and provides academic enrichment and leadership development.
