Girls For A Change is bringing together a community of women and girls to enhance girls’ views of their own potential and encourage their innovative nature. Girls voluntarily sign up to participate in a Girl Action Team. Teams are made up of 5-25 girls and facilitated by two adult women coaches who are trained by Girls For A Change to support the girls’ projects and enhance the skills, resources and creativity the girls innately possess. Together the team will plan, fund, implement, and lead a social change through weekly meetings. Coaches provide a safe, supportive space while partnering with the girls to implement their projects. Coaches are offered training and support by GFC throughout the year.
GFC has followed the recommendations of the Youth Mentoring Institute's SAFE mentor screening process since the first GFC program year. GFC fulfills the following steps as stated in the Institute's guidelines: "A complete screening process includes an orientation, written application, interview, character references, driving record, and pre-match training."

Current Girl Action Team coaches say:
“I have an excellent co-coach and the girls are so open, it’s like having seven sisters.”
“Working with girls gives me the satisfaction and ability to share the positive aspects of being a girl.”
