GirlVentures‘ is a rad organization that empowers adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths through outdoor programs and by learning to be self-sufficient in outdoor activities.
Through summer programs, after-school programs, mentorships, and large-scale events, GirlVentures teaches adolescent girls to be confident leaders. With activities like backpacking, hiking, kayaking and rock climbing, they learn from experiential educators and compassionate mentors, while building life skills that will empower them to reach their full potential.
We are super stoked to see programs like GirlVentures that teach girls at a young age to seek out challenges and reach their potential. Don’t you wish you were kayaking and climbing when you were 13?? If girls learn early on that they are strong and capable and have a place in the outdoors, they will have the confidence to push themselves to the next level. We need a generation of tenacious girls to lead in the outdoors!
” Exploring self, community, culture, health, and environment, our unique curriculum nurtures self-esteem and resilience, as girls develop into empowered, confident young women who are conservationists and compassionate allies to each other. The experiences that these girls share enable them to feel supported, find strength from one another and within themselves, gaining the skills needed to face the challenges of adolescence and making a difference in them that lasts a lifetime. “
GirlVentures is seeking donations this season – they are a a nonprofit and rely on supporters to provide need-based scholarships and outfit each girl with the food, gear and transportation needed for expeditions–ensuring all interested girls can join our transformative outdoor expeditions and leadership programs.
