The Story

In schools, inaccurate depictions of behaviors start to perpetuate a false story and Black girls' behaviors are seen as negative. There is a focus on discipline and control of Black girls rather than providing a high quality education and support services for Black girls’ overall social, emotional, and academic success. As a result, there is an increased amount of Black girls being pushed out of schools which increases their risk of incarceration.

Founded in 2013, Adventure Girlz is a leadership program for Black girls— descendants from the African Diaspora — who are at risk of school push out from underperforming schools into the juvenile justice system. Adventure Girlz participants experience girl talk, new adventures, and a network of sisterhood that will last a lifetime!

Adventure Girlz NYC will be doing there first challenge course which will include low and high challenges such as the suspensions bridge, the ropes course and zip lining. We find that the challenge course early on in the program strips the girls of their defenses, builds trust among the group and allows the girls to develop team building and leadership skills. The challenge course is an essential piece of our program. Your donation will go towards providing this opportunity to our girls and will include the transportation to the venue. Please consider donating as well as spreading the word. Every dollar counts and remember it is tax-deductible. We hope you will invest in our girls, they are the future!
