E-School Program

E-School for Girls is a two week summer intensive program at NYU designed to empower young women to become confident leaders and entrepreneurs. We strive to give rising High School sophomores, juniors, and seniors experiences that enable them to take initiative, pave their own paths and have the courage to achieve their own definition of success.

Student Testimonials

Ashanti

For me E-School for Girls was an amazing opportunity over the last two weeks to network, to meet new people, to have a great chance to learn what entrepreneurship is. We had the opportunity that many kids from where I’m from don’t get and i’m just so grateful for all the things we’ve learned from all the people and the connections we’ve made.

Thank you for every experience that you showed me and for every lesson that I learned and am now applying in the outside world.

P.S. Getting to do my pitch was the best hands-on experience that I could have ever asked for, and I had a lot of fun doing it!
