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.Learn More
Introducing the CAG's Girl Blogger Series
We are kicking off a series of blog pieces from adolescent girls and young women who feel inspired to write about the issues that are important to them. Julia, our first blogger, writes about how important girlhood and time are in making sure adolescent girls can learn about themselves and what they dream for their future. She lauds the IRC for giving girls a safe space to learn, communicate with each other, and grow. And she raises questions about how the participants may pass along this learning to others in their community.
