We envision a world where every girl believes that they are able and capable of achieving success in math.
WHO ARE WE
FLY (Financial Literacy for Youth) Math Club’s mission is to increase girls’ interest and engagement in math by boosting their academic confidence through authentic learning opportunities using a financial literacy-based curriculum.
WHAT WE DO
Girls ages 10-14 need a supportive and collaborative learning environment where they can build their math confidence. Through our year-round programming, we inspire girls to become academic risk-takers who are leaders, critical thinkers, and problem solvers. We break down mental barriers to math success for girls with the ultimate goal to close the gender gap in STEM fields. Check out our programs.
Our FLY Math Saturday Club is a 9-month program where students participate in workshops, plan and execute service-learning projects, and attend learning expeditions.
We host an annual Girls Love Math 2 Summit where girls participate in team-building activities, a career exploration fair, and hands-on STEM learning experiences.
We host a Math 4 Change conference where girls come together to collaborate as advocates using leadership, design thinking, and of course their STEM skills to become leaders of social change.
HOW WE DO IT
We provide a creative twist on math clubs. Financial Literacy for Youth (FLY) Math Club is different from other math clubs because we increase self-efficacy in girls by using math and experiential learning experiences.
