About Us

Our History
The very first Fiat Girls to attend the UNCSW were brought by a parent who believed it was important for young women of faith to have a voice at the United Nations. She accompanied three high school students from Cumming, GA to the 52nd and 53rd UNCSW's, in 2008-9. In years following, fellow parent and educator Elizabeth King-Howard set the program in motion by solidifying its mission, developing a curriculum, and selecting a name that reflected a willingness to say yes to each of our personal faith journeys. This past year, 16 young women participated from seven states and 10 high schools: both public and private, Catholic and non-Catholic. As of 2018, more than 90 girls are proud to call themselves Fiat Alumnae.
Fiat Girls is currently in the process of organizing as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our Alumnae Say Yes!
Fiat Girls agree, this program is life-changing:  Alumnae have chosen colleges, majors and even careers based on their experiences as a Fiat Girl.  In the last two years alone, Fiat Girls have:
  • organized an anti-human trafficking chapter on a college campus and another on a high school campus
  • initiated a hand-made blanket drive for the homeless in New York City
  • sponsored a full high school scholarship for a Rwandan student, a girl born of genocide war rape
  • provided training and supplies for for Traditional Birth Assistants in Isiolo, Kenya
  • presented an anti-pornography campaign and guest speakers for high school students in Georgia
  • provided funding for a summer camp to serve underprivileged children in Georgia
We see the suffering in the world and we choose to accompany--to protect the dignity of the human person and to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters across the world. God is calling each of us, and we respond with a resounding YES.
