GAINS Program

GAINS Invitation for the 2017-2018 School Year

We would like to invite any and all Buchser girls to join the GAINS network for the 2017-2018 school year. GAINS (Girls Achieving in Non-traditional Subjects) is a special free program offered in our district, where young women will have unique opportunities to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and other non-traditional career options.


Every month, GAINS members can learn from inspiring professional women and can ask them questions about their career paths. In addition, GAINS members participate in events throughout the year including Orientation, Success Camp, College/Career Day, workshops, project-based learning, field trips to college, business and industry, and an End-of-Year Celebration (with families). Extracurricular activities include lectures, tutoring, internships, and job shadows.


To apply, please fill out the application here by September 20th. Paper applications are also available in the Attendance Office and in rooms M-107 & M-204.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact: Anita Kodi (408) 423-3110 or My Lam at (408) 423-3164


Thank you for your interest, we are looking forward to an exciting year!
