GirlVentures inspires girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and collective action.
The only nonprofit of its kind, GirlVentures combines outdoor adventure with social emotional learning for adolescent girls, at a critical time in their lives.
These young girls follow the GirlVentures’ Leadership Progression Model, building confidence, leadership and life skills as they backpack, hike, kayak and rock climb in the Northern California wilderness. They learn from experiential educators and mentors while gaining knowledge and tools that empower them to reach their full potential.
GirlVentures programs explore identity, leadership, health and the environment. These shared, life-changing experiences enable girls to find strength from one another and within themselves. They gain skills needed to face the challenges of adolescence.
