The Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy (CGLA) has been selected as the ISA #JustCause client in 2020. A prior client in 2015, ISA wrote the last strategic plan for the burgeoning organization. Ian also keynoted at their annual fundraising in 2015. We are excited to work with CGLA again as they continue their transformational work for girls in Chattanooga.

About CGLA
The Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy is a single gender, small learning community for girls in grades 6-12. The college preparation curriculum is centered on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM). CGLA offers girls an accelerated and integrated remediation approach that is intended to move them to proficient and advanced levels within core academic subjects. A range of social supports that reflects girls’ social development needs are integrated into the educational experience.

About #JustCause
We believe education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world and solve extreme poverty.  ISA launched the #JustCause campaign in 2011 to raise public awareness and empower organizations using education to solve systemic poverty.  #JustCause has three focus points:  

  1. We promote education throughout our industry as the gold standard strategy for overpowering poverty;

  2. We consult with select organizations on a pro bono basis which use education as their primary strategy to overpower poverty;

  3. We invest financially in organizations that empower promising young people toward higher education attainment.

Organizations served under the Just Cause campaign include Portland Tennis & Education (OR), KUZA (Oregon-based and Uganda-focused), Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy (TN), Mississippi Children’s Museum (MS), and Village of Promise (AL).  

We will begin our pro bono work with CGLA in the summer and fall of 2020.
