Program Overview

Camp GirlForward is our innovative, academic summer program for refugee girls in or entering grades 9-12. With a social justice-based curriculum, Camp empowers girls to understand who they are, where they are from and how they can make a difference in the world around them. Through research projects, presentations, journaling, reading and weekly enrichment activities, girls build confidence and literacy skills.

Mission Statement

GirlForward provides adolescent refugee girls with individual mentorship, educational programs and leadership opportunities, creating a community of support that serves as a resource and empowers girls to be strong, confident, and independent.

A strong and confident girl today will become an independent woman who can successfully support herself, her family, and her community.
