Girls One Diaspora Club

Students in the Girls One Diaspora Club pose together

The Girls One Diaspora Club is for teen girls from Africa or the African diaspora who were either born outside of the US or are first-generation Americans and have an interest in STEM careers.

The club is a forum for these young women to deal with issues of culture, ancestry, ethnicity, and the challenges of assimilating to US culture. The facilitators of the club provide social support as well as assist the participants with career development and college preparation.
