Hear My Voice

Encourages girls to use their voices to advocate for change

Hear My Voice is a program of advocacy training for adolescent girls coordinated by Timolynn Sams Sumter.  Working together girls define the issues that are important to them, hear from experts in each issue area and learn how they can make positive change happen. 

An initial core group of students identified the issues that were of paramount importance to them: reproductive health, rape and sexual violence and socio-economic issues such as the wage gap.


Designed to build character and self-esteem in girls, interaction with adults will reinforce advocacy skills and help develop a new generation of leaders.

Professionally facilitated and expert-led sessions continue in September 2017 to STAR will lead the Responding to the Red Flags of Gender-Based Violence on September 9.
