PAGE (Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education)

The PAGE (Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education) program, founded in 2010, was developed to inspire and empower underserved rural girls through education. At its demonstration site in Madison County, North Carolina, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, PAGE offers learning opportunities for rural girls entering grades 6-12. With these learning opportunities, PAGE aims to provide girls with 21st century skills – for instance, creative critical thinking, digital technology capabilities, and high-level literacy – that they can ultimately invest back into their future families and into North Carolina’s mountain communities. SSRI partners with the PAGE initiative in applied research and evaluation in a multi-year engagement to develop program theory and implement specific mixed-methods empirical processes to inform ongoing learning and improvement.
