Mainely Girls:

  • Advertises and promotes events and opportunities for girls throughout Maine.
  • Supports the work others are doing on behalf of girls.
  • Acts as a point of connection and a referral service to available community and state resources for girls and women.
  • Provides both phone and in person consultations around issues affecting girls.
  • Advocates for girls and young women on the state level.
  • Is working to establish a network for girls and women statewide. 

Mainely Girls also jumps in and assists whenever possible to make good things happen for girls. For instance?
  • When Maine Coast Artists and the Chewonki Foundation co-sponsored their first Adventure Arts camp for girls, Mainely Girls helped them get it off the ground by offering encouragement, assisting in the planning, finding them some funding , and connecting them with some girls who were interested in attending. 

  • Mainely Girls connected Cathy Plourde, a feminist playwright, with girls and women on Islesboro who have wanted to be more involved in theatre there. Cathy worked with them on a project called Islespeak, which culminated in an island performance. 

  • Mainely Girls also helps with the annual Camden Girls' Conference: One Incredible Day. It has given a helping hand during the planning stages for similar conferences in Portland, Millinocket, Waterville and Old Town.
