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!
