Girls Without Limits! has been serving young women aged 9-14 since 1998. It focuses on math, science, and literacy skills in a self-esteem building environment outside of school. It was created for young women based on research showing that girls go downhill in math and science between the ages of 9-14. The YWCA recognized that sexism and gender roles play a role in academic success and created Girls Without Limits! as an alternative place to work on these academic subjects.
