New York City 2014 - 2015 Workshops

For over twelve years, Girls Leadership Institute (GLI) has awakened girls across the country to a life of authentic leadership. New York City, by hosting hundreds of programs and reaching thousands of girls and their parents, teachers, and communities, has played a vital role for GLI. We are very excited to carry our success into another year. Please check out what’s coming up for our 2014 - 2015 season in the list of our current programs below.

This is only the beginning of what we have in store. Please sign up for our New York City newsletter or follow the New York City Facebook page to get the latest on our workshop offerings. You can also contact our New York City Outreach Manager, Osy Harrison, at Osy@GirlsLeadership.org, or make an inquiry about bringing a workshop to your school or organization. It's easier than you think!

We run programs in the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, Downtown and most points in between. If the workshop you want is full, please consider putting your name on the wait list - There is no charge to do so.

Testimonials

"I’m still so inspired by all I witnessed during those five days of activities. I am proud of the leadership skills I saw developing especially in this particular group of very shy students." - Jahleese, on GLI Spring Break Day Camp 

"My daughter attended the workshop for second and third graders this past winter. It really helped her when she had a situation at school and she managed to turn a bullying incident into a friendship. Thank you for giving her the tools she needed!" - Karen, on GLI Winter Workshop
