MAIA (formerly Starfish) unlocks and maximizes the potential of young women to lead transformational change. The program targets girls who are otherwise unable to continue their studies beyond the 6th grade and empowers each to become a “Girl Pioneer” who trail-blazes an unprecedented trajectory. Through an integrated approach, MAIA is educating and empowering the next generation of indigenous female leaders in Guatemala. MAIA operates the Impact School, a secondary school for girls that serves as a regional innovation platform for best-practices in girl-focused programming. MAIA is defined by its abundance-mindset, powerful local team, and responsive design. We believe that by combining our holistic mentorship program with a rigorous academic model, our Girl Pioneers will truly be able to realize their infinite impact.
