Mission Statement

Girls For A Change (GFC) educates lower income middle and high school girls to be change agents, leaders, and innovators. GFC empowers girls to design, lead, fund, and implement social change projects that tackle problems they face in their own neighborhoods. GFC provides the tools, resources, partnerships, and support girls need to move from feeling like spectators to being leaders. Each year 1,000 teenage girls learn how to identify an issue in their community and pull together the resources needed to create change.

Description

Girls For a Change kicks off each fall with a Girl Summit attended by more than 1,000 girls and 300 women. Following the Girl Summit, groups of 10 girls and two women form Girl Action Teams to identify a problem in their community and implement a solution over the course of a year.
