Organization Information

Mission Statement

Daring Girls partners locally to ensure that girls have the knowledge, tools, mentorship, and support to confidently design their own futures. We're working toward a world where every girl has the skills, confidence, and savvy to design her own future and dare to become who she wants to be.

Description

When girls grow up in communities where they are not valued or viewed as equal, access to a strong woman mentor is key to helping girls understand their worth and see their potential.
Mentoring and life skills development programs have been shown to improve adolescent social skills and emotional well-being, and have shown that girls in particular benefit. Steeped in this research, the mentoring programs we support focus on goal setting and building resilience through long-term, structured lessons and curricula that involve girls, their parents, school leadership, and their surrounding community. The result? Lifelong impact and enduring bonds between girls, their peers, and their mentors.
