We teach girls to exercise the power of their voice, creating impact for over 150,000 girls per year.
We create impact for over 150,000 girls per year through a three-part, integrated strategy:
1) Innovation engine: We innovate in our Power Lab, a unique partnership model where our staff build relationships with girls, study and listen to their needs, and then design programs to meet these needs. Programs are validated in the Power Lab to ensure impact is applicable to all girls. Our current labs include the Student Leadership Network in New York and Latitude High School in Oakland, CA.
2) Impact engine: Once we have evidence that programs are working in the Power Lab, we scale that impact by training professionals and partner organizations nation-wide.
3) Advocacy engine: By designing programs to meet the needs of our most marginalized girls, we teach girls the skills they need to exercise the power of their voice to defy the systems that silence them. We partner with schools, community-based organizations, and programs to build their capacity to understand their vital role in upending these systems so our girls can come of age within supportive and healing environments.
