Stars Citywide Girls Initiative (STARS CGI)

The Sports Training And Role-models for Success Citywide Girls Initiative (STARS CGI)

STARS CGI is a collaboration of ten leading NYC nonprofits that support girls and young women of color overcome barriers to success, grow emotionally, academically and physically stronger, and develop as leaders in their communities.

Funded at $1.4 million by the New York City Council, STARS CGI offers the City of New York a unique opportunity to support the healthy development of thousands of girls and young women of color.

With support and funding from the New York City Council, STARS CGI develops the life and leadership skills of NYC girls through after-school and summer sports, academic enhancement, STEM, college prep and the arts.

The ten partners—PowerPlay NYC, Girls Write Now, Groundswell, Lower Eastside Girls Club, Row New York, Sadie Nash Leadership Project, The Armory Foundation, Figure Skating in Harlem, Girls for Gender Equity, and Bella Abzug Leadership Institute—all leaders in the out-of-school time space, continued to create thousands of program slots and deepen programming for girls in all five boroughs.
