As part of our mission to work within the community, GALS will often identify quarterly projects that help to improve the lives of girls in local communities. For all of our COMMUNITY projects GALS will seek the assistance of volunteers. The objective of these projects is to assist other service organizations that share our mission in achieving their goals and to promote awareness of the needs of girls in our local communities. In addition, we hope to encourage community involvement along with the desire to help others in need.

The Dressing Room Project is a girl-powered rebellion to free girls & women from the bonds of media-imposed standards of beauty!
This social change initiative was launched by Emerging Women Projects, a nonprofit organization for teen girl’s empowerment.
The registered Dressing Room Project Action Teams offer girls the opportunity, through workshops and other activities, to create cards with affirming messages. These cards are then posted on mirrors in women’s dressing rooms and other places to promote positive body image.
Free downloadable cards are offered each month on TheDressingRoomProject.org so anyone can participate.
Join the rebellion!

GALS supports the long-running Hope Line program that collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment in any condition from any service provider.
