Our vision is that Washington state is a leader in offering practices, programs, and policies tailored for girls facing adversity so they can overcome obstacles, access opportunities, and secure a purposeful future.
Gender matters. Along with other individual factors like race, ethnicity, age, disability, and background, a youth's visible gender and gender identity affect how they respond to the world and how the world responds to them.
Racial equity, youth voice and ally-ship are the fabric of - not an add-on to - our work.
Scrutiny makes us better. Our work is open to evaluation for improving impact.
Innovation is required. Using Washington State data to promote better outcomes for girls should lead to continuity of care for girls across systems and greater economic opportunities;
Collaboration creates synergy. We get farther by partnering and learning from others than on our own.
