To empower and equip the next generation of female leaders
Our mission is to empower girls through year-round leadership development and mentoring that builds self-confidence and fosters diversity. LiveGirl helps young women, especially those who need us most, realize their full potential.
Founded in 2014, LiveGirl, Inc. is a New Canaan-based nonprofit organization on a mission to empower and equip the next generation of female leaders. LiveGirl provides year-round leadership development and mentoring for girls in grades 5-12 proven to build self-esteem, social emotional intelligence and foster diversity.
