Alliance for Girls

Oakland, California, 94612 United States

Mission Statement

Alliance for Girls is the largest regional alliance of girls' organizations in the country. We represent more than 100 organizations and leaders that collectively employ 2,400 people with more than 5,100 volunteers serving over 300,000 girls across the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, we're forging a growing movement of girl-serving organizations that are more connected, more effective, and better able to prepare girls of today to be the leaders, agents of change, and thriving women of tomorrow.

About This Cause

Bay Area girls continue to face significant barriers to achievement. In San Francisco, girls’ enrollment in computer education courses has dropped 77% in the last decade. In Oakland, only 58% of African American females graduate high school. Most horrifically, the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the 10 worst child sex trafficking areas in the U.S, the majority of whom are girls. The need for a strong voice that can advocate on behalf of girls and a Bay Area that is laced with opportunities, support services, and resources for girls has never been stronger.

Alliance for Girls catalyzes every sector and industry to work strategically, passionately, and collectively to dramatically shift these realities and ensure that the next generation of women and girls realizes their full potential.

Our mission is to ensure that girl-serving organizations are more connected, more effective, and better able to prepare today's girls to be the leaders, agents of change, and thriving women of tomorrow. We strengthen leadership in the girls' service sector through research, advocacy, professional development and collaboration.

We envision a world where a girl's worth is determined by her mind and spirit, her body is safe and a source of joy, and the sky is her limit.
