Girl’s Rite Program

Since 2008, Girl’s Rite has provided a safe meeting place and a wide variety of activities for Plumas County teen girls, age 11-18, throughout the year.

Grounded in research on girls’ development, Girl’s Rite provides an all-girl space that supports girls’ capacity for self-confidence; physical and emotional resiliency; healthy relationships; and regular physical activity.
