Mission Statement

GirlForward is a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls displaced globally by conflict and persecution.


GirlForward supports girls in high school who have resettled in the US as refugees. We provide mentorship, education, and safe spaces so girls can build friendships, access resources and achieve their dreams. We were founded in Chicago, IL in 2011 and expanded to a second location in Austin, TX is 2016. Since our founding, we have had over 500 girls graduate the GirlForward program.
