GirlSpring empowers girls ages 9-18 by giving them the tools they need to be successful in life: accurate information, inspiring events, and positive female role models. Our largest program is our website, GirlSpring.com, which is an online magazine with content created by and for teenage girls. Topics range from mental health and wellness to opinions on global issues, environment, and human rights. We also offer public educational programs on similar topics and others relevant to adolescent and teenage girls, as well as film series, an annual summer camp, and annual career and stem fairs.

"The world is missing out on one of its most precious commodities - the power and strength of women, who make up more than half the world’s assets. Our investment in girls and young women now can reap huge benefits. By doing so, we build better communities, better relationships, better businesses, and a better world overall."
