Career Girls Empowerment Lessons
 
Educators: Start Here
 
At Career Girls, we know the road to independence and empowerment begins with education. Research shows that women role models have an important, positive impact on girls.
 
Girls need to start early building skills for their future careers. If you’re an educator looking for tools to engage and empower girls, you’re in the right place – whether you’re a classroom teacher or a mentor.
 
CareerGirls.org is a no-cost, ad-free career exploration website for girls and educators. It’s useful both in and outside the classroom.
 
Our Empowerment Lessons are based on two-minute video clips that feature a number of accomplished, diverse and inspiring women. These real-world role models share straight-to-the-point career insights and advice – so the videos clips serve as the ideal jumping-off point for an in-depth learning experience.
 
We also offer the downloadable educational materials you’ll need to complete each Empowerment Lesson.
