About the Coalition for Adolescent Girls

The Coalition for Adolescent Girls (CAG) is a member-led and driven organization dedicated to supporting, investing in, and improving the lives of adolescent girls. We drive new and improve existing programming, policies, and investments that promote the opportunities and rights of adolescent girls. CAG members envision, and strive toward, a world where adolescent girls are fully able to realize their rights, navigate challenges, and access opportunities during the transition from childhood to adulthood and beyond.
