Girls Talk! is an international girls leadership and empowerment program to promote gender equity and provide young women with the tools, knowledge, skills, and support necessary to act as agents of change at the local, national, and global levels. The program has been implemented in Tanzania, the Dominican Republic, and New York City.
Project to Prevent Adolescent Trafficking
IOFA has played a leadership role in the prevention of youth trafficking around the world through work in educating and supporting young people who are at risk for trafficking in both source and destination countries.

Project Prepare! is a unique educational program intended to provide youth leaving care the knowledge, skills, and support needed to transition successfully to independent lives. IOFA and its partners have implemented Project Prepare! in Serbia & Bosnia, and we are preparing to pilot the curriculum in Cambodia and Ethiopia.
