What is Girl Be Heard?
Girl Be Heard (GBH) develops, amplifies, and celebrates the voices of young women through socially conscious theatre-making.
GBH creates cutting-edge, cause-related theatre – inspired, written and performed by participants – that is thought provoking and actionable. Our non-profit theatre company gives voice to issues that girls are affected by most (including but not limited to bullying; body image; self harm). Our organization also takes on global issues affecting girls worldwide such as sex trafficking, forced child marriage, and gender-based violence. We regularly perform our acclaimed shows at the United Nations, TED Talk conferences and The White House.
Our rehearsal curriculum encourages young women to think critically about social justice, challenge stereotypes, foster friendships and increase tools for bringing about positive change in their communities. Our directors and support staff are committed to the long-term health and expansion of Girl Be Heard. We look forward to supporting and collaborating with mentors who are ready to challenge themselves, learn from new experiences, and participate as members of a team.
