What We offer


By developing their talents on stage, young people grow into
artists, activists, and leaders in their communities.

GBH participants can become Active Performers and audition for paid opportunities to develop and perform original shows, including an annual MainStage Show, based on the social justice issues they care about.

Bring Girl Be Heard to your community

Our Programs and Workshops create a safe, supportive environment for youth to talk about issues they care about and learn how to work together as an ensemble. Our curriculum fosters healthy, confident, self-aware young people who are engaged in their schools and communities.

Get Involved!


There is a lack of services providing girls and trans/gender non-conforming youth with the specific support they need to flourish creatively, socially, and professionally. Help us provide these services and join our community!

I want to invite you to join in the joy, learning, anger & recognition of listening to truth-telling as told by clear voices of GBH youth. They will inform, delight, alarm & help you reawaken that authentic voice that still lives within you.
