Mission Statement

"To empower at-risk girls to recognize their value and pursue higher goals through a community of women mentors."


The mission of Girls Rising is to empower at-risk girls to recognize their value and pursue higher goals through a community of women mentors. Our vision is a world where all girls know their value, have the skills to impact their own future, and have support available to reach their goals.

Our Big Sisters commit to spending time with their Little Sisters two to four times per month for a minimum of one year. We train our mentors to assist the Little Sisters with goal-setting, increasing self-esteem, and graduating each grade on time.

Through our program, the Little Sisters also gain a larger support network of women and girls. We host six to eight events each year for our matches, focused on exposure to new experiences, education, and building self-esteem and life skills.
