Girl Code Program

Research indicates that a significant proportion of young girls struggle with self-doubt and perceived inadequacy, resulting in female rivalry and competition. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased anxiety and depression rates, disproportionately affecting women and youth. In response to these challenges, the Girl Code program seeks to serve as a mentoring platform for high school students struggling with social and emotional issues. The program aims not only to address these problems but also to foster essential life skills to navigate them, ending female rivalry and promoting self-love. Through weekly, mentor-led group and solo activities, girls will learn to stand up for themselves and others, empowering themselves and their communities. With their resilience, power, and resourcefulness, they can become experts in determining their future, transforming their communities for the better. Join us for a 7-week journey of self-discovery, growth, and empowerment, where we aim to teach girls to love themselves so that they can love their sisters. Contact us now to learn more and sign up for our upcoming program, and let's work together to make a positive impact on the mental health and well-being of our youth and communities.

"I am so ecstatic that my young teen daughter had the opportunity to have the ladies of Girl Code POUR so much INTO HER! The vision and mission of this organization is in alignment with the needs of those they serve.


It brought tears to my eyes when my daughter (who was initially apprehensive about participating) came home excited about what she learned each day.  She was engaged.  It allowed her to gain insight and more respect for the individual that she is! 


Girl Code set the stage for us to embark on those difficult conversations revolving around the many obstacles black young women are facing.  My daughter was able to connect with the strong women of Girl Code who are professional, bold and encouraging. It is so awesome that she saw herself in them as she aspires to be great!



This was a positively impactful and powerful experience! Hopefully, my daughter can continue these relationships. 


I appreciate you so much Chanel & Ladies of Girl Code!

"This program needs to expand because so many girls need it"

- Program participant

"I loved the Girl Talk workshop because it gives everybody a chance to talk about what THEY think is going on, or what's going on personally, and it's a safe community so it was a good program because it let us talk about our emotions and a lot of people don't do that."

- Program participant

"I love this program because it gives you a connection to other women and you feel like you have a second home and you can really open up to these people without feeling judged or talked about after this; you can be open and vulnerable. I learned a lot!

What the data says:

  • According to new CDC data, nearly 3 in 5 (57%) U.S. teen girls felt persistently sad or hopeless in 2021—double that of boys, representing a nearly 60% increase and the highest level reported over the past decade. 

  • According to a study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, social isolation and lack of social support are associated with poorer health outcomes, including increased risk of mortality.

  • By fostering connections and community among girls and women with our youth program and events, we can help prevent feelings of isolation and reduce the risk of suicide, reduce the risk of substance abuse and addiction, and  help improve health outcomes and overall well-being.
