86 cents of each dollar raised goes directly into our programming. Since our founding in 2019, we have worked with over 900 female students and more than 1500 educators with the assistance of 130 volunteers.
Our programs are year-round with our Discovery Zone self-paced courses, broadcasts, industry behind-the-scene tours, and summer FABcamps. Read our testimonials and articles to discover how our members learn and grow by doing projects that are catapulting their skill and knowledge level far above their peers.
Is there an urgent reason to give now?
Yes! We have experienced unprecedented growth during the global pandemic. Our Athenians prospered and grew because of the community that we built to support them. We have outgrown our present situation and have already started moving forward with our new online structure and programming. To be successful we now require financial donations to grow. The urgency is real and our youth needs your support. The repercussions of COVID are not over and the after effects continue on the path to recovery. Give our Athenians the stability of knowing that they can be there for each other.
Can my company sponsor a program?
Most certainly! We have a variety of ways for your company or foundation to get involved. Our current focus is on the extreme growth that we have experienced and the structure that needs to be built. Our 2022-2023 Roadmap has incredible milestones! Please contact our team to learn how you can help us build a better future for our members!
