Teaching girls to take center stage
We celebrate young girls and women through summer camps, after-school programs, educational products, and events. We’ve spent the past 8 years building an empowering space for girls in the Bay Area, and have become a trusted resource for over 500 girls and their families.
Go Girls!, our flagship product, is more than a summer camp; it’s a movement. We’re now working on bringing this movement to the rest of the country, and eventually the rest of the world. In 5 years, we will be an international franchise with thousands of girls becoming “Go Girls!” through camps, after-school classes, and products and media designed to take the experience home. With annual revenues between $2-$7 million, we’ll commit 10% of those revenues to girls in vulnerable communities.
- Camp serves over 500 girls in 5 Bay Area locations
- 2012 finalist in Ashoka Changemakers “Activating Empathy” Competition
- Bootstrapped our business from nothing to revenues in excess of $300K
- In 2013, successfully raised $26,000 on the StartSomeGood platform
THROUGH ART AND LEADERSHIP
1st – 4th grade girls create and perform their own plays, culminating in a community performance.
5th and 6th grade girls produce, direct, edit, and star in their very own short films.
7th, 8th and 9th grade girls work as counselors-in-training in Go Girls! Camp and Go Girls!/Reel Stories.
After school, girls work on an art project that inspires them and benefits their community.
Go Girls! truly helped [my daughter] feel like she has worth, she matters, and she has something to say and to give the world. I am so very very grateful to Go Girls! for this.”
— Joyce Slaton, San Francisco mom and writer at BabyCenter.com
