At GirlVentures, we explore self, community, culture and environment through outdoor adventure, creative arts and group experiences.

We envision…
a world in which girls and women are actively engaged in the leadership of thriving communities; communities which are strengthened by diversity, civic engagement, healthy choices and environmental responsibility.

Our mission is…
to empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths.

We believe ALL girls have inherent strengths…
including, but not limited to: Courage, Intuition, Leadership, Creativity, Body Wisdom, Compassion, Curiosity, Resilience, Community and Self-Definition.

Our programs foster all of these strengths…
through our GirlVentures’ Leadership Progression Model which enables girls to build on skills learned in each program starting in 6th grade and continuing through High School.

We’re preparing the next generation of women leaders to…

  • make self-confident, strategic decisions;
  • develop effective communication and networking skills;
  • become strong mentors, stewards, and allies;
  • build healthier, stronger communities.
