Each summer, rising 1st– 8th-grade girls will explore our Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math (STEAM) Lab. As they are immersed in these subjects, they begin to understand that girls, too, can be pioneers in these areas. Girls will spend each day learning with state of the art machinery including 3-D Printers, Programming, Vinyl Cutters, Laser Engravers, Sewing, Raspberry Pi’s, Robots, and more!

We’re always hearing about the lack of diversity in the technology industry, especially when it comes to black women. While their numbers may be small, we hope to inspire girls to learn that STEAM careers can help tackle our world's problems and they have the power to do big things in the tech world. In addition, to our focused STEAM programming and traditional camp activities, girls will experience diverse weekly themes focused on areas such as visual arts, health & wellness, financial literacy, green living, character development, leadership skills, and fun-filled weekly field trips while building new friendships and creating lasting memories.

Benefits of Camp Diva Leadership Academy:

- Safe, Affordable, and Convenient for working families

- Girls lead their own exploration of STEAM programs

- Girls participate in activities that develop their social-emotional skills

- Girls improve sisterhood through sustained engagement with female peers and mentors

- Simply put, Girls For A Change teaches girls that they have enormous potential and there is power in being a girl growing into her womanhood.
