The Orchid Foundation's mission is to mentor underserved high school girls. We choose girls – ages 14 to 22 – who are exceling in their academic and/or extracurricular pursuits and help fill the resource gap presented by their socioeconomic backgrounds. Our “Orchids” are star athletes, honor students, poets, humanitarians, and feminists who deserve the same opportunities as the top ten percent. With our hands-on approach to building sisterhood and self-esteem, we provide programs such as college bootcamp, SAT/ACT prep, art tours, financial literacy training, coding classes, community service programs, and career day outings. The Orchid Foundation was founded by Nichole Galicia, a model and actress who has starred in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Django Unchained, and Defiance.
