Founded in 2016, Esteem Girls Inc. is emerging as a ground breaking opportunity for girls specifically those from under-resourced communities and minority girls in the Philadelphia metro area. Our inspiration to start such a program arise from the local statistics and national trends in STEM as well as the standardized test scores amongst female students in grades 3-8 from the School District of Philadelphia. These students scored dramatically lower compared to other students.

The African American Museum of Bucks County honors the rich legacy of the African American experience, inspiring pride in our heritage, and sharing information and stories about the diverse journey of our people and our shared ancestry. Our programs and exhibits explore the history and heritage of the diverse cultures of Bucks County and beyond. We tell these stories through special exhibitions, public events, and educational programs.
