Free 12-week program. Our VMFA Girl Action Team focuses on the Black music that helped shaped today’s Southern music culture. Richmond Metropolitan High School Girls are invited to join us in this hybrid program. Girl Action Teams will meet once or twice a week, October – May.

Girl Action Team is national curriculum that is designed to empower girls to create social change. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem-solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential. We invite young women of color to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods. If you have asked yourself these questions, then come to a meeting to connect with other girls who have too! Share your ideas and work together to answer the questions and create CHANGE through a project YOU design!

What do you want to change in your community?
