17 Apr Girlvolution!

Girlvolution is a production by Powerful Voices, an organization that fosters adolescent girls’ development by providing programs and promoting
social justice so girls can realize their dreams, engage their communities and shape a better world.

Girlvolution, scheduled for April 22, 2017, invites the community to participate in collective dialogue and restorative change facilitated by youth voice and agency.  Our Activistas program is a 12 week employment program for 10 girls who will be supported by 10 Adult Allies to create and present an interactive workshop on a social justice topic that impacts them and their community.  This year we are proud to be featuring art from Coyote Central, spoken word poetry from Youth Speaks Seattle and Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), and workshops by Y-WE. This is our 8th year!

Since 1995, Powerful Voices has been improving the lives of adolescent girls in Seattle through innovative evidence-based programs in public middle schools and in the juvenile justice system.  The founders met at the University of Washington School of Social work.  During a time of dot-com start-ups they built a dot-org start-up, then known as the Seattle Women’s Resource Project.  Their vision was an organization that would promote Girl Justice and address issues at their root, by instilling leadership skills, fostering the development of critical thinking, and promoting the individual potential in adolescent girls.

Data2insight is proud to recognize Powerful Voices for the work they do to empower adolescent girls and their development.
