Who We Are. Our Mission
The mission of 4GIRLS is: to inspire and empower middle school girls to identify themselves as authentic, confident, and resilient, preparing them for real-life success.
Through our annual workshops and ongoing empowerment events in between workshops, 4GIRLS teaches middle school girls new skills that encourage and motivate them to make good choices for real-life success. The 4GIRLS workshop brings together a cross-section of middle school girls for a weekend of inspiration and gives them an opportunity to thrive.
All 4GIRLS programs are offered at no cost to the girls, and provide a safe place for them to accept and appreciate themselves for who they are and discover their potential.learn more
