The OneBar is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with GirlVentures, a Bay Area organization creating a community for girls to come together to learn & grow through outdoor activities. As a woman-owned company, we are especially excited to contribute to GirlVentures to help raise a generation of female founders just like our own CEO.
GirlVentures was founded in 1997 by two Bay Area women who met at the Harvard School of Education, where they studied the transition from childhood to adolescence among girls. They found that girls faced multiple emotional, physical and social challenges, particularly girls in marginalized communities needed extra support and mentorship. They discovered that outdoor education, especially single-gender outdoor education, fosters the qualities that girls need in order to face the challenges posed by the transition to adulthood. The GirlVentures programs give their participants the strengths they need in school and life by building their self-reliance, collaboration, and leadership skills.
As the only nonprofit of its kind, GirlVentures combines outdoor adventure with social and emotional learning for adolescent girls at a critical time in their lives. Starting at age 11, their Leadership Progression Model builds girls' confidence, skills, and leadership as they backpack, hike, kayak, and rock climb in the Northern California Wilderness. They learn from experiential educators and mentors, while building life skills that empower them to reach their full potential.
