Join Us for the Life After WINS Alumnae Panel

About this Event

In its eleventh year, Life After WINS highlights and celebrates current WINS students and the successes of program alumnae. Panelists will share meaningful experiences from the program and the impact it has had on their lives.

Women In Natural Sciences (WINS) is a free afterschool and summer science enrichment program offered to female public school students. Since its founding in 1982, WINS has been providing participants with hands-on science classes, skill-building activities and opportunities for personal growth in a uniquely nurturing setting. To date, more than 820 young women have completed the WINS program. The program’s mentoring and support have resulted in 100 percent of students graduating high school and more than 96 percent attending college.
