Just for Girls Elementary (JFGE) provides an innovative education to meet specific needs of girls in grades K-5 with an emphasis on Responsive Classroom as well as Reading, Language Arts, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) supported by emotional & character development. Just For Girls Elementary is connected to Manatee County Girls Club d/b/a Just for Girls as a part of the Just for Girls Elementary Education Program. JFG provides educational, developmental, and prevention-based programming to disadvantaged and impoverished girls during the dangerous and often unsupervised pre-and-post-school hours. JFGE is housed at Just for Girls east Bradenton center in Manatee County. Just for Girls keeps our children safe, promotes living drug-free, and motivates girls to succeed. JFG offers before school, after school, and alternative education opportunities.
VISION: A community where today’s young girls grow up feeling safe, capable, and smart, having developed respect for themselves and others, with courage and confidence to be healthy and to achieve their full potential academically. Reaching one girl at a time, we will break the cycle of poverty and strengthen our families, neighborhoods, schools, and community.
