GEN Turns 20!

This year, Girls Empowerment Network turns 20 years-old! We’re excited to celebrate with all of you who have allowed us to grow and provide thousands of girls with safe spaces for learning and self-discovery.


Over the next year, we’ll be reflecting on our development and looking forward to what’s next. We invite you to share in this reflection by contributing your own GEN stories. If you’d like to share memories of working with GEN as a volunteer, employee, intern, Board member, donor, supporter, or, of course, as a girl in one of our programs, please email Elena ( We can’t wait to hear all of your smart, silly, and inspiring memories.

Keep an eye out for upcoming 20th Birthday messages! We consider ourselves lucky to count you among our community as we take this next step.
