The Alliance for Girls Circles Initiative

At the annual Members Meeting in January 2017, Alliance for Girls (AFG) announced the launch of the Circles Initiative! The Initiative will convene small cohorts/circles of members and girls/young women of all ages who are invested in supporting girls and young women, to explore, connect and discover. (Not a member? Join us!)

Goals of the Initiative are:

  • To foster deeper connections among Alliance members
  • To foster intergenerational connection and learning
  • To encourage collaboration among girls’ organizations
  • To support connected and sustainable leadership of girls’ organizations in the Bay Area
  • To strengthen Bay Area regions as healthy and vibrant places for girls and young women

Circles convene for a 2-3 hour meeting once a month for 6 months, to address a particular topic/area of focus, working toward a project goal defined by cohort leaders and their cohort members.

Alliance members interested in leading a circle had the opportunity to submit their topics and proposals. The final list of topics are listed below.

Click on the topics above to read the final proposals, and apply here by July 17th!

Questions? Contact Kailin Chou at and/or the cohort leaders.
