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!
