The Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education (PAGE) provides innovative learning opportunities for adolescent girls in Appalachia. It is designed to help rural mountain girls enter a world that is global, digitally connected, and navigated through literacy and leadership skills.

PAGE girls create advanced learning projects in a Digital Learning Lab, read books, think critically and creatively, and discover new ways of achieving their dreams.

Please join us in the movement to help rural girls learn 21st century skills and become young leaders for a changing Appalachia.


One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.
