“I felt extremely welcomed, the girls in my club felt like my sisters whenever I got the chance to talk to them. Girls Leadership feels like a second home.”

“It was really fun and definitely brightened up my week. I’m not an open person who loves to share things but this program was eye-opening when it came to that. Everything we were taught was so important to our lives now and in the future.”

“I like how we talk about real problems going on and how I feel confident and safe to share personal stories.”

“I like being able to talk about things like relationships and how to deal with them with other girls my age.”

“Everyone in this club is super understanding about gender identity, your values, and much more. This program has helped me find my confidence, and I really recommend it.”
