CareerGirls.org is a comprehensive video-based career exploration and readiness tool for girls. It’s free to use, and free of ads. We have the largest online collection of career guidance videos focusing exclusively on diverse and accomplished women — over 250 of whom are in STEM fields — and we add to it weekly.
Career Girls is unique. We provide inspirational and educational videos of real women from diverse backgrounds who have made it in their chosen fields — and pair those videos with other useful tools for girls, as well as for the educators, parents, mentors, and other adults who are guiding them.
Our role models believe in the nonprofit Career Girls cause and participate without pay, volunteering their time to share inspirational — and practical — stories about their careers to improve outcomes for girls worldwide. By bringing these role models together in our free, easy-to-use online platform, Career Girls is creating a powerful opportunity for girls to explore a vast range of career options, expand their view of what is possible, and learn to dream big about their futures.
