Last year Girls Leadership Institute served 9000 girls, parents, and teachers.  Now, we need your help to capitalize on the positive momentum and take our work to the next level. Girls Leadership is poised for bold changes in 2015. We are proud to announce that in addition to providing our tranformational, high-quality programs to girls, parents, and educators, we will: 


  • Produce 16 powerful short videos for parents. This new series of smart and savvy videos with easily digestible tips and advice for parents and caregivers will be accessible online, for free, to parents and caregivers when and where you need it.

  • Unveil new research for all schools and girl serving organizations to fill the gaps in knowledge around girls leadership ambitions and skill acquisition led by Co-Founder Rachel Simmons.

  • Serve a broader community of girls through our community-based collaborations. Together with our local partners, we will build our capacity to serve a broader diversity of girls, families and girl-serving organizations.
