GBH Press Kit
If a young person can change their own life, they can change the lives of girls everywhere. We envision a world in which every young person is valued and encouraged to be a leader and change maker.
Girl Be Heard is uniquely positioned to engage youth and open up dialogue about social justice issues affecting their communities—from gun violence to sex trafficking. We run both afterschool and weekend education programs in
under-served areas of New York City, where all of our girls’ theatrical work is generated. Building self-esteem, growing individual talents (step dancing, singing, rapping, and acting), and empowering girls to become leaders in and advocates for their communities is Girl Be Heard’s unique model and why Girl Be Heard has been so successful.
