A little about our charitable programs...

Pave the Path to Success

Young women who are survivors of domestic abuse and homelessness, or former foster youth, are often forced to face the world without any guidance or safety-net. The Pave the Path to Success program provides educational workshops to help these young women learn entrepreneurship and leadership skills so they can take control of their path and build a better future.

Youth Leadership Intensive

We created the Youth Leadership Intensive Program to help create a new generation of leaders. Goals include exposure to potential new role models by focusing on Women in Stem while being a woman in stem themselves as they produce and publish their own podcast episode; using the power of their own voice.

Startup Incubator Grant Program

As a non-profit organization, our Startup Incubator Grant Program is a platform designed to nurture and guide women entrepreneurs through the process of creating their own startup business, regardless of budget or resources; this is a merit-based business incubator program available to graduates of the Pave the Path to Success Program. which includes an application process to be voted on by Board of Directors & Grant Evaluation Committee.
