Girls at the Center

Applications accepted through  February 22

This interactive program was created to address the specific needs faced by girls of color and/or from marginalized communities. We are looking for girls ages 14-17 to participate in this program which runs Winter/Spring 2024.  Program participants will meet with community leaders to learn about issues that affect girls such as mental health, safety and sexual harassment, confidence and public speaking, and other issues of gender equality. The program participants will work together as a group to present what they’ve learned to the public on GirlSpring’s website and at a public event at the end of the year. The goal is to encourage discussion around these topics and to create true change through education and self-advocacy.

This will be the second cohort of Girls at the Center, which launched in 2022 with generous support from the Women’s Fund of Alabama.
