LeadHERship Club

Calling all young activists and those who are ready to have fun, connect with girls from different cities and work together to change the world. This fall we are building a powerful, intimate community of girls from across the country, who want to learn more about themselves and new concepts around diversity and social justice. Be ready to engage in small group discussions, learn life hacks, create projects with art and multi-media tools and teach others about a cause that matters most to you.

Our virtual LeadHERship Club is for girls in grades 5&6 and 7&8 who want to learn how to use their voice for themselves, others, and their communities. Participants meet twice a week and the sessions are facilitated by experienced Girls Leadership educators. Girls will learn essential social and emotional skills like how to listen to and respect their internal voice, explore and celebrate their identities, build healthy friendships at home and online, and begin the steps to become leaders in their communities for change.

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. – 2020 Club Member

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. – 2020 Club Member
