START A CLUB CHAPTER
Increase girls’ interest and engagement in math by boosting their academic confidence through authentic learning opportunities using a financial literacy-based curriculum by bringing FLY Math Club to your school. We empower girls in grades 6th-8th to become academic risk-takers by engaging them in experiential learning experiences that integrates financial literacy. We welcome girls from all academic performance levels and backgrounds. Therefore, club members don't have to be a math whiz to participate in FLY Math Club programs. However, every girl must be willing to put forth effort in all tasks and exhibit a growth mindset.

There is no startup fee for a new club chapter. Our current program fee is $125 per student per 9-week season. Financial aid is available based on students' eligibility for free or reduced lunch programs. Our priority is to ensure every girl believes that she is able and capable of achieving success in math, regardless of whether or not her family can afford to pay the full program fee.
