WHAT WE DO
A girl's physical, emotional, and mental well-being is rooted in her self-worth, and we are living in an epidemic of self-doubt.
I AM THAT GIRL is a 501(c)3 organization helping girls to transform self-doubt in to self-love by providing a safe space to connect and have honest conversations about things that matter. Every day, girls are bombarded with messages that attack what she is NOT and we work every day to help her love who SHE IS; to see that in herself and inspire that in others.
We are shifting girl culture and raising the standards for how girls treat themselves, each other, and the world. Every girl deserves a community where she can be seen, be heard, and belong. Together, we are building those spaces in person and online.
Addressing the emotional, mental, and physical well-being of girls.
Originally founded in 2002 by Alexis Jones while she was an undergraduate at USC, I AM THAT GIRL officially became a nonprofit in 2008 and has since grown to nearly 300 local chapters, and more than 1 million followers online.
