Girls Initiative for Reproducing Leaders in Society (GIRLS NOLA) is a girls’ mentorship and empowerment program, which utilizes integrative arts and gamification techniques to educate young women and girls about their Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights (SRHR). This program has been designed to address pressing issues that young women in urban communities
face; such as leading HIV and STD rates, teen pregnancy, violence, and reproductive health disparities, that exists due to the lack of comprehensive sexual education. GIRLS NOLA is a two-track initiative that is free to youth and families.

Track 1 is an 11-module curriculum that offers youth the knowledge and skills that will enable them to make well-informed decisions when it comes to their bodies and overall health.
