During these uncertain times, how can we help?

About-Face frees girls from the confines of our toxic culture so they can fulfill their potential.
About-Face arms self-identified girls with the knowledge and tools they need to fight back against a culture that diminishes and disempowers them. We work to improve teen girls’ mental health, self-efficacy, and leadership skills through local and national programs that teach media decoding and activism skills.
From unrealistic beauty ideals to narrow stereotypes, girls receive dangerous and limiting messages from social media, TV, movies, and real-life events every day. Learning how to deconstruct those messages and fight back to create change helps girls (girls and those who identify as girls or who are non-binary) see and achieve their full potential.
Our programs for teen girls range from our Education Into Action in-school programs to a weekend boot camp, and our online resources for teens here on the site. We also support their adult advocates - parents, teachers, mentors, relatives, and group leaders - through adult-centered workshops as well as curriculum development and support.
