What Is Girls Fly! ? -- A Rare Dream Experience

Girls Fly! emboldens women and girls to experience the power of their dreams.


Girls Fly! is an empowerment program that encourages women and girls from all age groups and all walks of life to pursue a wide range of personal and professional aspirations through interactive experiences, presentations and mentoring. Project activities provide a safe place for participants to be inspired and encouraged, to experience the joy of listening to their inner wisdom, and to build bridges with girls and women from different communities.

Who Participates in Girls Fly! ?

Girls Fly! Community Events are aimed at girls and women from 10 to 85; with guardians in attendance girls as young as six are welcome to participate. We make a special effort to target women who are single heads of households and have daughters; girls with disabilities who are capable, yet severely underrepresented; girls in the foster care system; women and girls from the immigrant communities; Girls Scouts; and women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) careers.

ALL MY LIFE I HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF DOING THIS….



Girls Fly! is a dedicated place and time for a female to be empowered to make her dreams a reality. The time is devoted to being mentored, inspired and reminded of the power of the girl voice within, regardless of age and circumstances.


When strangers arrive for their Girls Fly! experience, they leave as friends and cheerleaders for a successful life. They are connected by their shared dream:


  • Arts range from finding your voice in the performing arts with an American Idol to creative expression in the culinary arts at a local restaurant.

First Lady Michelle Obama, September 26, 2011

“If we’re going to out-innovate and out-educate the rest of the world, we’ve got to open doors for everyone. We need all hands on deck, and that means clearing hurdles for women and girls as they navigate careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.”

Where Are We Going With Girls Fly!

Girls Fly! was tested in 2011 in Tucson, Arizona. Anticipating 45 attendees for 4 venues, we were amazed at how many women hungered for a safe space associated with their often unspoken dreams. We had approximately 628 attendees, 24 simultaneous venues throughout the city, ages 5 to 86 years young. We had men bring their daughters, their wives, girlfriends and mothers. We had neighbors drive from California, northern Mexico's Nogales women city council members, Nevada and Arizona.


Six months later, Girls Fly! Liberia took place in Monrovia over five days. President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf appeared on Day 5.


June, 2013, Girls Fly! Belize was tested and a video of more than 5,000 girls over three days can be viewed below.


It is our desire to partner with you to make Girls Fly! a success for women and girls in our community.


Thank you for your consideration and belief in what is possible for women and girls from all walks of life.
