Courageous Girls, with the help of other Bay Area resources, will be selecting a group of young sexual violence survivors to learn mountaineering skills and go through rigorous training with the goal of trekking to Mt. Everest’s Base Camp in 2016. Along the way they will learn to heal, love and realize that anything is possible, regardless of their pasts.

Over the coming months, we’ll be sharing these Courageous Girls’ stories here and chronicling their amazing, life-changing journey. Please remember to check back for more information soon.
