Girls+ means that our programming is open to young people who identify as girls and young people who have ever felt like an outsider or an other because of their gender. Non-binary, trans, and genderqueer young people are welcome in MEDIAGIRLS programming!
Pre-teen and teen girls+ spend an average of 6+ hours a day on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and TikTok consuming content from various celebrities and influencers. They log on to feel more connected, but often log off feeling more anxious, insecure, and lonely. Our #REALMEDIAGIRL Curriculum is here to change this by teaching girls social media literacy. License and get certified to teach our #REALMEDIAGIRL Curriculum today or have us come to your school or organization!
