Project Description

 

At Girltelligence, we are passionate about empowering teen girls and young women so they can boost their mental health, build their confidence, and fulfill their potential.

Growing up as a girl and entering adulthood as a woman is wonderful, but also comes with many questions and challenges. Numerous studies have shown that having a supportive community, whether it is online or offline, is very effective in improving wellbeing, mental health, and success, especially in young women. However, young women today rarely have a supportive, non-judgmental environment where they can be their authentic selves and get support and advice from peers.

The Girltelligence app

With Girltelligence, we created the app that we wish we had growing up. It’s a place where self-identifying girls can be their authentic selves and have countless opportunities to have real conversations, support each other, and access reliable information.

We use two powerful ways to empower young women: 

  1. A supportive community. The Girltelligence app is a safe and accepting space for teen girls and young women where they can have conversations, ask and answer questions, build communities, get support from and share their experiences with peers, and empower each other – anonymously, or not. The conversations are customized by age so people only see conversations that are appropriate for them.
  2. An innovative educational component that shares actionable information to help girls and young women thrive. 

The Girltelligence community is kept safe and supportive with proprietary AI developed by us that is designed specifically to protect girls and women. 

Girltelligence was founded by Naama Barnea-Goraly MD, a child and adolescent psychiatrist and former Stanford brain researcher who has worked extensively with children and adolescents with mental health disorders and published numerous studies on the neuroscience of social cognition. Our team also includes an intern, Hayley Yu, a clinical psychology graduate student at University of Michigan, and an advisory board of amazing high-school and college young women across the world who are active participants and advisors on every step of development. You can meet some of them in the video above!

What's next?

Girltelligence is currently in beta and we are working hard to further develop our social features and information sections. We have very exciting updates coming soon, and your support will help us help young women faster. You can support us by purchasing our rewards for yourself or anyone who supports empowering girls and gender equality.

Check out our app on the App Store and Google Play (free) and share it with all the young women you know. www.girltelligence.com 

And follow us on social media: @girltelligence – Our direct messages are always open, so stop by!

Can't wait to see you on Girltelligence!

At least five of our most popular stickers and an exclusive no-touch tool!

Includes:

Our super-cute golden Girltelligence no-touch tool is perfect for keeping you safe from germy surfaces. Even post-COVID, who wants to touch the public bathroom door? Not us. It also makes a really cute key chain that'll make it easy to find the keys in your purse. Comes embossed with a little heart and "Girltelligence." 

PLUS -  at least 5 stickers. You can use them yourself and share them with friends.  

Stickers include the exclusive "Nothing scares the patriarchy like  empowered women" sticker. We are doing everything we possibly can to empower as many young women as we can because we want to scare the patriarchy away to create an equal and safe society for all. 

Also includes our “This is what a doctor looks like” sticker. As a young physician, our founder spent roughly 15% of her time explaining to staff and patients that yes, she is in fact a real doctor. This was the inspiration for this sticker, which is dedicated to all the women physicians out there and all our PhD friends - we are all doctors. 

Plus at least 3 more surprise Girltelligence stickers. We create new ones all the time. They are all awesome. 

High-quality stickers that look great on water bottles, laptops, phones, notebooks.
