Atlanta Jewish Academy is helping to level out the playing field with the new Young Women in STEM program. With an annual hands-on STEM career fair in the spring and a year-long mentoring program for high school girls, there’s something to fit the needs and interests of every STEM-loving teen.

This program is an initiative of the Atlanta Jewish Academy and their vision to provide an education of excellence that meets each student’s interests, abilities, and needs. Young Women in STEM is supported by the Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta, promoting social change and positive opportunities for Jewish women and girls and JumpSpark, Atlanta’s Jewish teen hub for innovation.
