ArtVentures for GirlVentures brings together artists from throughout the Bay Area to show and sell their works in support of GirlVentures’ programs, which promote creative expressive courage among adolescent girls.
GirlVentures is a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit located in The Women’s Building in San Francisco’s Mission District. Our mission is to empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths. At GirlVentures, we explore self, community, culture and environment through outdoor adventure, creative arts and group experiences. GirlVentures offers girls the unique opportunity to uncover their true potential – through the discovery of their voice, their community, their selves. Since its founding in 1997, GirlVentures has played a pivotal role in the lives of over 2,000 Bay Area girls from primarily low-income communities through our four core program areas: Summer Programs, School-Year Programs, Leadership Development Program, and Community Courses.
