SUPPORT OUR WEEK-LONG CREATIVE INDUSTRY CAMP!
Based in Richmond, VA, Girls For A Change is a non-profit organization with a mission to support and inspire girls of color to visualize bright futures and potential through discovery, development, and social change in their communities. Girl Ambassadors, provides girls in grades 9-12 with job readiness and professional development training, as well as the opportunity to build the skills needed for success in the 21st century. Then, we connect the girls to job shadowing experiences and paid/unpaid internships, and provide them with one-on-one support throughout. This early access and exposure to these opportunities sets our girls up for a successful career path and helps them step over some of the barriers that Black women and other women of color face.
The Fashion Industry Camp provides exposure to multi-disciplinary design opportunities. These experiences invite young women of color to consider design education and STEAM careers, and this is why we need your support. Together we can build a network of support to advance their opportunities for continuing their education and/or employment.
“We were blown away by the confidence and poise of these amazing young women, as well as their understanding of what they wanted to learn and experience in this great big world. It was clear right away that the girls wanted to know more about our industry and to experience and sample the many paths available to them.” Fashion Snoops
