We USE theatre, writing, and storytelling to engage our youth.


Our listening model provides a fearless space for girls to speak honestly, develop community, express themselves, think critically, hone artistic and leadership skills, and become activists for issues they care about. 

At Girl Be Heard Once participants have finished their school-year weekend or after-school workshop they are eligible to audition to become an Active Performer. Our Active Performers perform at high-visibility venues such as City Hall, national conferences, and the UN, and are paid for every rehearsal and performance. They continue to grow their artistic abilities through opportunities like the annual Girl Be Heard Mainstage Show and continue to give back to the organization as Girl Be Heard Ambassadors.


Our Philosophy

If a girl can change her own life, she can change the lives of girls everywhere. We envision a world in which every girl is valued and encouraged to be a leader and change maker.
