By attending you will have valued networking time with other community-minded people, and the proud satisfaction of knowing your involvement will further the Girls For A Change mission to empower girls, ages 11-18, from low-income neighborhoods to engage with their communities by creating social change. Through the process of identifying, designing, and implementing girl-led solutions to challenges they face in their own neighborhoods, girls gain the voice, skills, and problem solving capacity they need to realize their full potential.

At our Annual Girl Gala, girls and coaches are seated at every table. Girls run the evening program, which includes dinner, entertainment, a silent auction, the Change Agent Awards, the presentation of projects by the girls, and special guest Courtney Martin, an award-winning journalist and widely sought-after speaker on activism and feminism.

Sharna Fey, Keynote SpeakerAttendees are encouraged to bring their children to share in the celebration of a year of programming and be inspired by our award recipients, other women in attendance, and our keynote speaker Sharna Fey, a life coach and highly praised leadership consultant with more than 20 years experience helping others define and obtain their goals and dreams.

For each $1,000 donated, you can give one girl in the Bay Area

12-weeks of programming and a lifetime of possibilities.


Girls For A Change serves over 2,000 girls a year nationally! Please come meet some of the girls, coaches, and supporters. We welcome long-time supporters of GFC as well as new friends! You'll join with current and former girls in our program and volunteer coaches who will share their experiences at the table and immerse you and your friends as part of this celebration of girl power!
