About Cool Girls
The Cool Girls mission is to break the cycles of poverty, low self-esteem, and teen pregnancy through life skills programs. We work to develop girls into confident women through education and exposure to a broader world of opportunity [like technology]. We serve over 350 girls through partnerships with 8 Title 1 schools in DeKalb and Fulton Counties.
Cool Girls Club
Cool Girls Club is the flagship initiative for Cool Girls. It’s a weekly after-school program for girls in 2nd to 8th grade. The club provides academic support, life-skills development, physical fitness and nutrition programs and exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) via a series .
Cool Scholars are Cool Girls who participated during elementary and/or middle school. To truly empower our girls to change their world, education must be at the forefront of our focus. From offering college tours, financial literacy, exam preparation, STEM opportunity awareness or even introductions to industry professionals, providing the support they need to say “yes” to a higher education and/or the “what’s next” for their lives.
Both Cool Girls and TAG-Ed have been inspiring thousands of students in the Atlanta metro area annually for years through empowerment, upliftment, exposure and access.

Collaborate with education partners and technology thought leaders to both advance and advocate for STEM initiatives for Cool Girls
