A girl's physical, emotional, and mental well-being is rooted in her self-worth, and we are living in an epidemic of self-doubt.
I AM THAT GIRL is a 501(c)3 organization helping girls to transform self-doubt in to self-love by providing a safe space to connect and have honest conversations about things that matter. Every day, girls are bombarded with messages that attack what she is NOT and we work every day to help her love who SHE IS; to see that in herself and inspire that in others.
We are shifting girl culture.
Raising the standards for how girls treat themselves, each other, and the world. By building a community for girls to be seen, be heard, and belong, we are giving them something bigger than themselves to stand for and creating a healthier, more powerful world.
Turning stories of struggle + adversity into stories of triumph and connectedness.
At I AM THAT GIRL we've connected hundreds of thousands of girls from all over the world from across the globe to love and express themselves through online and offline programs and initiatives. Our 175+ local chapters, online community of 700,000+ and our group of influential supporters have enabled us to reach over 5 million people.
Addressing the emotional, mental and physical well-being of girls.
COMMUNITY: Our online and local communities give girls a safe space to express who they are, lift each other up, and give a voice to issues and things that we're all going through.
HEALTHY MEDIA: Media is one of the biggest influences on how a girl defines herself. We create, curate, and advocate for premium and user-generated content for various distribution channels to inspire healthy conversations and honest perspectives.
EDUCATION: We put into practice the IATG values and beliefs through tangible leadership tools and education that teach girls emotional intelligence, professional skills, and personal growth.
Originally founded in 2002 by Alexis Jones while she was an undergraduate at USC, I AM THAT GIRL officially became a nonprofit in 2008 when Alexis teamed up with Emily Greener to amplify the power of girls' discovering their own voice. Together, they worked to grow the organization's chapter model to 200+ chapters around the world.
