Participants gather weekly to engage in live STEAM demonstrations, virtual job shadowing experiences, health, and wellness sessions. The Girls Link Up program targets girls of color in an effort to support their social and emotional needs, all while exposing and empowering them to pursue STEAM college and career pathways.
