The Black Girls' & Young Women's Collective
At The Black Girls' & Young Women's Collective, we know we can bridge the gaps Black girls confront—but only when the girls set the course. With a forum to share their challenges, ideas, and hopes, Black girls and young women can express, openly and fully, what they’re facing and what they need. As we listen, we learn how to support them.
The core definition of embracing change refers to cultivating an attitude of accepting change as a positive development and integrating it into daily life.
The Center for Healthy Families conducted a study to ascertain the experiences and opinions of pregnant and parenting teens, teen fathers, caregivers, and organizations providing services to pregnant or parenting teens.
The major message of all the voices heard and of the facts reviewed is that preventing teen pregnancy and caring for teen parents and their children more effectively and efficiently requires everyone to begin by embracing change.
Day of the Girl
“In a space and time when girls’ opinions are being ignored or silenced, Central Ohio experienced the first summit of its kind, focusing on creating safe spaces
for girls, young women, and gender-expansive youth to be seen and heard.
Day of the Girl is based on a simple promise: elevate the agency of girls and young women and listen to them. To those, many deem girls too young to make
decisions for themselves or their families, to those who are being drowned out by generations of disparities and inequalities. To those who deserve the opportunity to pursue their full potential – we are here.”
