Generation Girl

Encouraging Girls to Pursue their Dreams

All children, regardless of gender, race or income level, should be able to pursue their dreams. Generation Girl®, an initiative of the Applied Materials Foundation, is working to make sure that all girls* have the opportunity to reach their potential. We are engaging with nonprofit organizations throughout the United States to help girls gain the confidence, skills and opportunities they need to succeed in any path they choose.

Our grantees are working with girls, especially low-income girls and girls of color (specifically, Latinx, African American and Native American girls), to increase girls’ empowerment, facilitate leadership development, and provide access to high quality afterschool enrichment programs, including STEM.
