Building self-esteem and growing individual talents is how we empower young people to become leaders and activists in their communities.


Our Programs

Our programs share the GBH method and curriculum of mentoring and listening to the girls’ stories; helping them develop their writing and speaking skills to powerfully express and share their experiences, and leading discussions about the issues affecting women and girls around the world.

Through the performances, the company members not only develop their confidence and skills but they are able to teach audiences about the issues affecting girls and women and impact the world for social change.
