About Us

Nala is a retreat and workshop program for young South Asian women (15-19 yrs) in Northern California.

We create opportunities for women to connect, share, and create. Our mentors and facilitators are California-based South Asian women working in fields ranging from law, tech, finance, education, and healthcare.

Nala’s unique workshops draw on contemporary literature and pop culture to spark discussions around themes that are relevant to South Asian teens today including identity, career choices, and spirituality.

Our goal is to create a growing network of local South Asian young women who can offer support, guidance, and friendship to one another.
