Inspiring and Empowering Middle School Girls


I think every girl in the world should come to the 4GIRLS Workshop because it is life changing.4GIRLS Workshop Participant

****It is with a sad heart that 4GIRLS is postponing the 2020 Long Beach Workshop to a future date. (The workshop was originally scheduled for March 21 and March 22.)

We continue to monitor recommendations from the state and local public health agencies and the CDC, and will heed their advice when selecting a future workshop date.

So many incredible volunteers have invested so many hours, given their talents and contributed funds to make the 10th Long Beach Workshop the best one yet, but we cannot ignore the health directives and state requirements – specifically no large events/gatherings, like the workshop – to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to contact us at


Workshop Participants

The 4GIRLS Workshop in Long Beach returns on March 21 and 22, 2020. Applications and information for this workshop will be posted here in early 2020.

The 4GIRLS Workshop in Anaheim took place in October 2019 at the Ponderosa Family Resource Center.

Application acceptance is determined by the local 4GIRLS committee members based on greatest need. All applicants will be contacted shortly before the workshop to confirm participation.

Are you interested in helping transform someone’s life? Our Adult Mentors and Junior Mentors are matched up together for the weekend, and they guide a small table of 5-10 girls throughout the workshop. If so, apply to the 4GIRLS Mentor Program:

Junior Mentors
Junior Mentors are high school young women who are critical to the success of the 4GIRLS two-day workshop. Each Junior Mentor collaborates with an Adult Mentor to facilitate conversation among their table of girls and encourage the girls to fully engage with the workshop.

Adult Mentors
Adult Mentors are at least 18 years old and out of high school. Adult Mentors spend both days at the workshop supporting the Junior Mentor and contributing to the experience of the middle school girls.

Serving as a 4GIRLS Mentor requires a significant time commitment; however, it is very rewarding as you witness first-hand the transformation of the workshop participants.

Both Junior and Adult Mentors must attend a 3-hour training session, which is usually scheduled 1-2 weeks prior to the workshop. Training dates and locations will be posted online and selected Mentors will be contacted with training details in advance.

All Mentors must have a current Live Scan on file with 4GIRLS, since we work with minors (children under 18 years of age) and our insurance carrier requires that all volunteers working directly with minors have a Live Scan report. Live Scan is a digitally scanned fingerprint service.

“Current” Live Scan is defined as having been completed within 3 years of the workshop.

Visit this site: to find a Live Scan location near you.

Please email your results to the contact email listed in your Mentor Welcome Letter and Email.
