Empowering through education: Fostering growth in one's self and their community
Our programs inspire girls to be the next generation of innovators, critical-thinkers and decision makers by giving them opportunities to see academics in action. Participants work together to discuss ideas, learn to solve problems, collaborate, and make informed decisions to better themselves and their community.
We work with girls ages 11-14 to show them skills for the real world. As part of our diversity and inclusion initiative, we welcome any individual who self-identifies as female including transgender and/or non-binary to join Girls Count programming.
Our female-run events provide role models for girls who are passionate about a variety of topics. When girls see themselves in our mentors, they see the unique potential of their own abilities.
Gender equality can only be reached if girls are confident in who they are, passion about making change, and active members of society. We showcase girls' talents and interests so they can pursue their goals in a positive and supportive space.
