A Company of Girls seeks to strengthen and empower youth and the community through the arts.
A Company of Girls(ACOG) is an after school theatre and arts-based resiliency program for girls aged 8-18. ACOG is located at 10 Mayo Street on Munjoy Hill in Portland. The members of ACOG are from many diverse communities in the greater Portland Area. Transportation is provided for those girls who need it to get to and from the program.
At ACOG, girls can come together after school and learn about theatre, film, the arts, and social skills. It is a safe place where they can discuss issues that are important to them. It is also a fun place, just for them, where they can discuss "girl things." Their time together also includes journaling, painting, attending arts events, creative writing, sleepovers, apple picking, community service, pot-luck family dinners, dancing, fundraising, and much, much more.
