GirlVentures’ mission is to empower adolescent girls
to develop and express their strengths.
As the only San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit of its kind, GirlVentures combines outdoor adventure with social emotional learning for adolescent girls, at a time in their lives when they need our support the most.
Through our courses that follow our Leadership Progression Model, girls backpack, hike, kayak and rock climb as they experience the wonders of the Northern California wilderness. They learn from experiential educators and compassionate mentors, while building life skills that will empower them to reach their full potential.
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.
