Miami, FL-Women's Issues & Youth Development

About the Program

Connect girls between the ages of ten and seventeen in the Greater Miami Area to the Outdoors and Sports. This program seeks to create a bridge over hardships and obstacles that girls experience when it comes to accessibility to the outdoors and sports.  

By introducing girls to the outdoors allows them to cultivate the next generation of environmental stewards and conservationists. Girls will participate in activities such as hiking, trail maintenance, invasive species removal, gardening, and more. 

Sports allow girls to take up leadership roles and improve their beliefs in their own abilities. This translates into everyday life. Sports encourage girls to take initiative and step outside the social norm. This program introduces girls to sports such as Kayaking, Biking, Soccer, Softball, and Paddle boarding. Working with girls from all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, our curriculum will inspire awareness of dynamics of power and oppression in our society and thus spark questions and thoughts in the minds of participants. These girls will become agents of positive change in their communities.
