Become a Sponsor 

This event and our entire 1girl mission would not be made possible without the generosity of sponsors who believe in the power of providing mentorship for girls. We are in need of companies and organizations that truly believe in our girls and their potential and are ready to invest in their dreams by equipping them with the skills and support that every person deserves.
