Our Programs

Health & Media Education

HOTGIRLS educates young women and girls in the Atlanta metropolitan area about sexuality, dating violence, body image, media literacy, and other health and social justice issues through a variety of delivery formats. We also train young women and girls in technology and media production. We work closely with youth and community-based organizations to ensure that our programming is up-to-date, relevant, youth-friendly, and informed by real-life situations that affect young women and girls.

Our Audience

HOTGIRLS educates the general public about health issues that affect young women and girls. Although the primary beneficiaries of HOTGIRLS are teen girls in Atlanta, we also reach adult women, young men and boys, and youth around the United States and other countries through the Internet.

Leadership Development

HOTGIRLS builds the leadership potential of young women and girls through all of our programs.

  • Young Women's Leadership Council: The YWLC is a leadership development and peer education program for young women enrolled in colleges and universities in Atlanta.
  • Teen Advisory Board: The Teen Advisory Board program is for girls who have demonstrated leadership potential and commitment to HOTGIRLS by participating actively for at least one year. Teen Advisory Board members create positive changes in their communities, educate their peers about teen issues, record their own music, create content for HOTGIRLS web sites, and receive training in leadership development, peer health education, youth organizing, and media production.

Girls' Summits and Workshops

HOTGIRLS conducts health and empowerment summits and workshops for youth. Click here for more information.

I Am Worth It Campaign

HOTGIRLS is a pioneer in reaching underserved young women and girls through the Internet. We launched the “I Am Worth It” Campaign ( to provide a platform for girls to affirm their worth and promote positive self-representations online and in their local communities -- while challenging harmful stereotypes about women and girls. The I Am Worth It web site also educates and informs teen girls about health and teen issues.
