About Us

Our Mission

The mission of Be-Ruth Foundation is to build & uplift teen girls and empower them by increasing their knowledge and skills in STEAM.

Our Vision

Be-Ruth envisions generations of self-confident girls unafraid to use their talents and knowledge to transcend societal ceilings, who understand the importance of and practice self-care and good environmental stewardship; while transforming the professional landscape of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM).

Empowering through Exposure

Women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce and make up a minority percentage of STEAM workers in the US (<25%). Women of color represent a smaller share of the science and engineering workforce (11%) than their proportion in the general population and are often marginalized in technology and engineering professions. 

Through Be-Ruth, girls in the primary stages of development participate in activities and events that inform, engage, and challenge.

Exposing youth as early as possible to STEAM career options helps teens understand how to choose a career. This increases the probability that their selection will be the most suitable and fulfilling while increasing their economic power exponentially. We give young girls tools and resources to display their untapped talents and potential to change the world through the lens of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Engaging through Mentorship

46% of youth are less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and are 27% less likely to start drinking as a result of mentoring. (Public/Private Ventures study of Big Brothers Big Sisters)

Through our group mentoring program, we foster a young girl’s personal growth, development, and social and economic opportunity.

Educating in STEAM

Asian students took advanced mathematics courses at a significantly higher rate than any other racial or ethnic group, with 50% taking calculus or higher, compared with 22% for white students, 15% for Hispanic students, and 9% for black students. (ncgproject.org, 2018)

Be-Ruth instructs teen girls by developing academic programs and activities that foster learning in STEAM.

STEAM development teaches youth to dissect and solve any problem through process, promotes long-term growth and maturity, and creates career options and focus.

The goal is to enhance their public education and give girls additional training in the area of STEAM.
