What People are Saying about Pathfinder:
“In high school you’re still figuring out who you are – what you can offer to the world and what you want to get out of it. Girls Empowerment Network gave me the opportunity to work some of it out when I was in high school and the tools to continue later on.” Pooja, College Senior, former GEN program participant
“While schools focus on getting young women ready for a successful future from an academic standpoint, GEN’s Pathfinder program teaches them lessons most people have to learn the hard way – networking and communication skills, interviewing tips, résumé dos and don’ts and so much more. It’s the jump start smart girls need to get even smarter about their future!” Maria Orozova, President & Creative Director, The MOD Studio
