Join an organization that is relentless in its mission to improve the lives of girls* on the margins through collective action. As the nation’s largest association of girls’ organizations and school partners, our 120 organizations and 250 schools serve 300,000 girls and gender expansive youth annually, 83% of whom are girls of color. Alliance for Girls (AFG) knits together a powerful girls’ service and leadership sector where girls’ needs are met and their power is amplified.
“Listen first, act together.” At AFG we listen to our members, service providers and educators, leveraging hundreds of woman-years of direct experience. We amplify the voices of girls and gender expansive youth to guide our strategic direction. We believe that those closest to the struggle are closest to the solution. We strive to model a culture of self and communal care, grounded in values of equity and justice, through internal operations and external impact. We are constantly imagining, thinking and planning processes and approaches that enable excellence in our work and enhance collaboration among our team and partners.
Alliance for Girls’ unique combination of girl and community-driven research, coordinated initiatives driven by the intellectual and cultural power of our membership and school partners, and focused and inspired public advocacy enable us to affect deep and lasting change that directly improves the lives of girls and the systems that impact them. Join us as a senior leader of this growing organization.
*At Alliance for Girls, "Girls" refers to gender expansive youth (cis girls, trans girls, non-binary youth, gender non-conforming youth, gender queer youth and any girl-identified youth).
