With public orders of sheltering in place being issued in California and beyond, we find ourselves in new situations and ways of being at work, in our families, and in our communities. We know many of you are sheltering in place with children and young people, and may be looking for fun and engaging activities for them.
With a membership of 100+ organizations and professionals who work day in and day out to support girls and gender-expansive youth, Alliance for Girls’ community is teeming with amazing gender-responsive programs and curricula, many of which are being made available virtually for free to girls, their families and educators. We’ve highlighted a few of them below.
If these activities bring joy and learning to your young people, we hope you’ll consider donating to the above organizations, as well as other organizations and professionals that support girls and gender-expansive youth listed here, to help them respond to the ever-changing reality and continue providing critical services for young people.
For additional resources to support young people, families, and community-based organizations, check out our aggregated list of resources here.
Please continue to let us know how else we can support you. We are in this with you, and we will get through this together.
