At The Cross Stitch Project, our mission is simple: use digital media and internet technology to help young women develop confident voices and change the world.

The Cross Stitch Project connects teen girls in the U.S. and developing nations via a peer-to-peer network to share empowering stories and images from their lives and communities. Girls advance their technological, expressive, media and design skills through professional workshops and mentoring.

Cross Stitch members jointly design techno-craft projects which our U.S. teen chapters market to raise funds for secondary education programs for girls.


The Cross Stitch Project provides a space for girls to be confident, creative, articulate, and civically engaged in the world.
