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 offer programs for girls in grades 8-12 that empower participants to embrace their futures and feel confident in their ability to create and contribute to the world they want. GFAC participants come together to affect positive changes for girls across the West through our Summit, Think Tank, Core Committee and more.
