GENaustin will expand its in-school and after-school programs for girls in four middle schools serving economically disadvantaged students — C.D. Fulkes and Chisholm Trail in Round Rock ISD, and Manor and Decker in Manor ISD. Services provided will include the clubGEN after-school program and the in-school Girls Now workshop series. GENaustin hires high school girls as mentors for the middle school girls while also providing them with financial literacy, career building, resume writing, and other training. Through this program GENaustin will help ensure 280 young women have a dynamic, exciting, and high quality experience exploring topics such as peer relationships, diversity, and healthy bodies.
