Help Kwenda Collegiate Girls increase #Access4BKGirls
Kwenda Collegiate Girls Charter School is a proposed public K-8 charter school aimed at transforming academic outcomes for the young women of Brooklyn, NY.
We know that girls' schools have transformational impact on their alumnae. Currently, only 1% of young women in the United States graduate from girls' schools; however, a staggering 1 in 4 Congresswomen are alumnae of girls' schools. New York City is home to some of the most successful and storied single-gender independent schools in the country. Yet, there is only one existing public elementary all-girls school in the entire borough of Brooklyn. Kwenda Collegiate Girls strives to be an additional high-quality option for families and students seeking a single-gender, college preparatory setting.
Our Mission: Kwenda Collegiate Girls Charter School educates young women in kindergarten through eighth grade in an academically rigorous, structured, and supportive community that prepares all students to graduate from college with the courage to lead.
Kwenda Collegiate Girls is committed to centering the voices of our community - particularly the voices of families, women, and girls - as we build our school model. We need community feedback to grow, iterate, and become a true reflection of our community. We have launched the Amplify Her Voice campaign to collect community feedback, share our mission, and activate parents and families in our work. Your donation will go towards the cost of our branding campaign, marketing materials, and supplies for volunteers.
