Mission Statement

The Athena Program strives to empower young women in the Boston and Cambridge areas.

We draw upon the energy and strength of high school and undergraduate students to inspire community, leadership, and activism around gender issues. Through mentoring relationships, workshops, and conferences, the Athena Program provides a validating and supportive space to combat structural and internalized oppression.

Although our programming is designed for high school women, individuals of all genders are welcome. We are working towards a world where gender does not determine your confidence, aspirations, and opportunities in life.

Description

The Program aims to unite young women from underserved, low-income communities in teh greater Boston and Cambridge areas with undergraduate mentors who support and challenge each other in discussion and skill building around gender empowerment, community leadership and youth activism.
