Recognizing that girls are inundated with subtle societal messages about their value and potential, Girls Rule!, inspires girls to define for themselves the type of young women they would like to become.  We provide girls across the U.S. and abroad with life-changing experiences and real solutions to the unique issues they face. Girls Rule! provides girls with the right tools for positive decision making in a safe environment where trained professionals and mentors guide them.  Girls learn to set and achieve goals, boldly confront and overcome challenges, resist peer pressure, see college as attainable, and explore a variety of career pathways.

Each donation made to Girls Rule! pays dividends in local communities in the form of:

  • Enhanced leadership, technology, employment and
    entrepreneurship skills
  • Lowered youth truancy
  • Enhanced conflict resolution skills, parent engagement opportunities
    and community engagement through service projects

We also know the following outcomes to be true of the girls our programs

  • 82% showed improved self-confidence
  • 79.8% demonstrated enhanced communication skills with parents, peers and authority figures
  • 66.3% developed better conflict resolution and decision-making skills
  • 63.1% improved their academic performance
  • 87% were accepted into 2-4 year college programs

All girls will rise to the occasion of excellence if provided the proper resources and tools and society as a whole benefits.


Weekly Girls Rule! programs, special events like "Careers, Cupcakes and Conversations," college tours, tutoring and other programs are made possible as a resulf of your generous financial support. 
Please feel free to donate any amount as you see fit.
