Girls for a Change

Inspiring the next generation of female leaders.

Join the movement.

Each year, hundreds of high school girls from around the state gather to meet new friends, explore new careers, and celebrate their unique strengths at our annual Summit.

What is Girls for a Change?

Girls for a Change (GFAC) inspires girls to create change in themselves, each other and the world around them. We have programs for girls grades 8-12 that empower them to embrace their futures, secure in their ability to create and contribute to the world they want. Girls for a Change (GFAC) participants come together to make a positive impact for girls in Montana through our Statewide Summit, Think Tank, and more.
