Informed, In Charge, & In Action:

As of 2019 women only make up less than 24% of Congress. Nearly two thirds of college students experience sexual harassment. And, 1 in 4 women will experience sexual violence at some point in their life. It is important for girls to be informed of their rights so they grow up confident and independent.

Informed, In Charge, & In Action is a 6 month advocacy program inspiring girls to become leaders and champions for their rights. Girls are encouraged to strive for leadership positions during their school careers now, in hopes that they will become inspired to run for public office positions in their future. Many agree that women need better representation in our government, and this program will give participants the encouragement, confidence, and critical tools they need in order to make a difference in their world. Informed, In Charge, & In Action is open to all high school girls in Orange County.

By participating in this program, girls will receive: a minimum of 15 community service hours, mentorship from female elected officials in Orange County, Girls Inc. Leadership curricula, and more!
