Our next venture with youth is a 4-week program through the Redwood City Public Library — but you don’t have to live there to be a part of it! Do you know any teen girls* who would like to participate in this change-maker collab? Learn more here.

Accepting applications through July 5, 2020!

* “Girls” refers to any and all self-identified teen girls, trans girls, or non-binary, gender non-conforming, or gender expansive youth. We recognize folx exploring their gender, particularly at this age, and honor that in this space.

Introduction to About-Face: Decode the Media

ONLINE, ongoing gatherings to learn more about us

All are welcome, whether you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area or elsewhere! 

Whether you’re a parent, educator, or just someone who cares about teen girls, we invite you to join us online to get the About-Face basics. You’ll learn the skills we teach teen girls* so they can think for themselves, and the positive impact it has made for them. On hand will be our Executive Director, our Director of Programs, and a special guest who’s a former About-Face program participant.

Next date for Introduction to About-Face

Thursday, July 2, 2020 ~ 12:30-1:30pm PDT (GMT-7)

Feel free to invite anyone in your circles who may be interested. Age 12 and up, please. 

This is a one-hour long, free, informational gathering. (No donations will be solicited.) Some portions will be interactive, but eating your lunch or walking around your space during the call is also welcome! We will ask for your feedback after the meeting.

* About-Face welcomes and includes gender-expansive youth. To us, “girls” means self-identified girls, trans girls, gender-expansive youth, gender non-conforming, and non-binary youth.

Our weekly Instagram Livestream with our Director of Programs Hénia Belalia is on pause this Friday, July 3, 2020. You can always catch previous IG Lives on our Instagram.

Our event with Peggy Orenstein, author of “Boys and Sex” has been postponed.

We apologize for any inconvenience. To receive an announcement when the date is set, please email us.
