Adventure Girls

Helping girls follow their dreams

Adventure Girls

Full Description


Check back soon for the 2016-2017 schedule!

An interactive program for girls in grades 2-6, Adventure Girls gives girls the opportunity to meet once a month with women who are defying gender stereotypes and challenging notions of what a girl or woman “should” do or be. Adventure Girls brings girls together with college mentors and women facilitators to learn how mountaineers, race car drivers, boat captains, and other daring women chose to do what they do and how they’ve found the courage to follow their dreams.

In 2016, Hardy Girls partnered with the Alfond Youth Center.  Adventures will be open to members of the after school program at the AYC and they will continue to be open to girls who sign up via the Hardy Girls website. Check out our schedule below and click by each adventure to register.  Please be patient as we finish confirming with the Adventure women. Check back often to see what stars we add to the list!

All adventures are on Tuesdays from 4-5:30pm
