Media literacy for teen girls* is essential to their growth. About-Face arms girls with the knowledge and tools they need to fight back against a culture that diminishes and disempowers them.

From unrealistic beauty ideals to narrow stereotypes, girls receive dangerous and limiting messages from social media, TV, movies, and real-life events every day.

Learning how to deconstruct those messages and fight back to create change helps girls see and achieve their full potential.

Our programs for teen girls range from our Education Into Action in-school programs to a weekend boot camp, and our online resources for teens here on the site. We also support their adult advocates parents, teachers, mentors, relatives, and group leaders through adult-centered workshops as well as curriculum development and support.
