In partnership with schools throughout Portland, Seattle and SW Washington, we focus on holistic youth development. Participants learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl inclusive environment, and research-based programming equips young people to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Informed by youth and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls.


Board and staff leadership are dedicated to assuring high-impact services for our program participants throughout Oregon and Washington. We set bold goals and clear strategic direction to help us achieve these goals.

Additionally, we are also governed under a commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), and as such this is made clear in our DEI statement.
