Global Girls Day June 23

The goal of Global Girls Day, an event of Girls International Forum, is to encourage girls to improve their lives by taking leadership roles in their home communities and around the world. Participants will develop specific tactics to tackle the issues that concern them the most. They will form support networks with other girls working on a similar issue in their communities.

Girls ages 12 - 18 will have the chance to focus on a specific global issue facing girls and women. In the morning session, they will learn more about an issue that they choose. In the afternoon, each girl will be on a team that creates an Action Project that proposes a solution to this problem.

Anyone up for a road trip to St. Paul, Minnesota?
