The divides that impede female participation in sport—access, exposure and self-perception—are surprisingly quite similar in STEM fields.

Play Like a Girl offers life-changing experiences for girls in grades 5-8 across the U.S. and Canada through our Sports Clubs and STEM Camp programs. Our programs focus on three specific outcomes for the girls involved:

HEALTH

We offer learning opportunities that help our students and alumni to develop a lifelong passion for an active, healthy lifestyle.

CONFIDENCE

We build a supportive sisterhood of coaches, teammates and role models who help our students and alumni build their confidence on and off the field of play.

LEADERSHIP

Our programs create clear pathways for Play Like a Girl alumni from middle school into high school, college and, ultimately, the workforce.

OUR IMPACT


Play Like a Girl is the only 501(c)3 charitable organization in the nation providing high-impact STEM and sports programs to girls in a supportive environment—and we’re committed to building a pipeline of future female game changers.
