There continues to be a significant gender gap in the STEM fields and with regard to leadership in a broad range of fields, from business to politics to entertainment.

The Girls Inc. Teen Mentorship program’s goal is to connect youth with local women in the community to help increase their knowledge and confidence in their desired career paths.

The program offers hands-on/minds-on practical work experience to help teens build confidence and independence to pursue their goals while helping to dismantle gender and racial inequities in the workplace.

Teen Advocacy Council

Now more than ever, giving every girl and teen a pathway to affect positive change in society will make a pivotal difference in their lives.

Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara is committed to changing the systems that hinder and limit girls’ lives and potential. And our youth want to be a part of that change.

Imagine: what if girls and young women in Santa Barbara had access to an advocacy toolkit and training in grassroots campaigns, civic engagement, and coalition building to drive social change? The world to come would change to one where girls take the lead and their rights and freedoms are guaranteed and protected.

Through our Teen Advocacy Council (TAC), teens will learn practical advocacy skills, the history and importance of advocacy for women and people of color, mental health and self-care in advocacy spaces, and issue-specific workshops aligned with the teens’ interests and priorities that emerge through their work.

of teens say being at Girls Inc. has helped them think about their future.

If I hadn’t come to Girls Inc., I think I would be one of those girls in school who wouldn’t try their hardest and would give up after high school. Girls Inc. has helped me become a different person because they have pushed me to go to college. Now I want to go to college and with my leadership skills I can also help others pursue their dreams.
