Future Leaders Academy for Girls

Our girls learn about S.T.E.A.M. careers in Alta Vista Elementary School with FUNducation.

Elementary school girls are empowered to become our tomorrow’s leaders. Our Future Leaders Academy for Girls program, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota, helps them to gain knowledge and exposure to higher education and S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. career opportunities, which will motivate them to increase attendance, school involvement, and academic achievement. 

Parents of our FLAG students learn about post-secondary education.

Parents learn to navigate the education system and community resources while the girls are in sessioon, which will result in increased involvement in their child’s education.
