Girls Rising's Mission
A nonprofit organization created by all-female rock band, Antigone Rising, to empower and inspire girls and LGBTQ kids to pursue careers in STEAM fields.
We uplift kids and build self esteem by sharing our personal stories at outreach workshops and live performances. We include special guests at our workshops from other STEAM fields to create a panel of diversity. We award grants and scholarships to students in underserved school districts, and provide kids opportunities through our Girls Rising Music Festival.
Girls & LGBTQ kids need to see strong role models they can emulate and identify with in positions of leadership. Our outreach workshops aim to do just that by bringing successful women and queer people of all ethnic backgrounds to their attention.
