Our stage is set, WeGo!

Strong, independent female leaders

501(c)(3) Non-Profit founded by Kylee Hamamoto '24


Our Story

Every time I needed an escape from reality or to get my mind off something, my dad would take me cruising in our car. On these drives, there wasn’t much talking, but an awkward silence never lingered in the car and my frustrations and sadness would ease.

          “We go,” he would say.

These simple words offered me his support and love, gave me confidence and assured me that everything would be alright.

I want girls everywhere to experience the same support and love when they hear the words, “we go.” 

We exist to create opportunities for girls everywhere to use our network to tell each other stories, empower one another and work together. We believe by bonding together and working through our common struggles, we can build each other up and break through glass ceilings,

WeGo! Around the World


Our mission

WeGo!'s mission is to foster strong and independent female leaders.


We believe that every girl has undeniable potential to become a strong leader for positive change, and not in some cliche and ubiquitous way. Therefore, we want to give girls everywhere access to an innovative and supportive space like the one we've create with WeGo! 

WeGo! embodies and promotes local values of kuleana (responsibility), laulima (many hands at work), and mālama (stewardship) in the work we do statewide, nationally, and globally!

Creating Leaders at each step of the way

No girl is alike. In terms of becoming a leader, we all start at different points of the process. Our 4-step process allows us cater to every girl. Everyone is capable of becoming a leader for positive change. Let's change the tide, together.
