Every Girl is for girls ages 9-14 years from disadvantaged communities to achieve positive change, enable the development of strong self worth, growth in confidence, and to decrease bullying and stereotypes. Using a strengths based approach and a human rights framework, this cutting edge program guides girls to create new areas of resilience, and to help them find their voice through civic and community engagement.
