For Girls and Young Women

Girls Action provides spaces for girls to speak out, build skills, and create action on issues that are important and real to them. Our local girls programs address violence prevention, health promotion, media literacy and leadership. Our national leadership program offers long-term investment and support to young women who are changemakers in their communities.

“To me, leadership means making a difference in others’ lives and challenging myself to always do what is right for me.” -Young Women’s Leadership Program participant
