When girls are exposed to strong female role models who
have achieved success in a career, they become inspired.
They gain self-confidence and acquire a positive belief in
themselves, enthusiastically wanting to nurture their own
abilities to achieve success.
The Rainbow Girls are role models to young girls by showing
how they succeeded in areas where academic strengths are
pre-requisites for success. Each Rainbow Girl tells her story
of dreaming to become a professional from a young age,
studying the subject matter, and ultimately becoming
successful in her chosen career.
Our audience consists of girls in middle-school, ages 7-12,
encouraging them through entertaining story-telling to believe
that they, too, can excel in academics and achieve success
in a professional career later in life.

the ongoing digital conversations about getting girls into
non-traditional careers such as technical fields and others

one area or another. Social media also puts us in contact
with educators and teachers, who can use our outlets as
resources for their students to learn, dream and achieve!

blog, where we discuss different topics about getting girls
into professional careers, host a page with definitions of
careers, and salute successful professional women
through our Twitter stream.
