The PROUDgirls are innovative, resourceful and independent young women. They planned and executed a phenomenal Fashion Show Event in three of our stores -- each whose sales went to benefit those in need.  The girls decorated, provided their own music and narratives, and selected their own clothing for the show.  The PROUDgirls are a unique group of caring, philanthropic young women with whom we have the pleasure of assisting annually!
—Janine M. Cabral, General Manager, Old Navy Outlet at the Arches 


Bravo for the Proudgirls. Love your message

I recently learned of your organization after All TABS Up mentioned both of our organizations in a tweet earlier this week.  We love the work you are doing to empower and encourage girls and women. You are an amazing resource for teen girls. I am thankful that organizations like PROUDgirls exist to remind women of all ages that we have the power to make a difference.
