Girls' Leadership Council

20 girls. Six days. One Chance to Make an Impact.


The Girls' Leadership Council (GLC) gives 20 rising juniors the unique opportunity to become community leaders and philanthropists each summer. Over six days, the GLC will conduct site visits with nonprofits, meet local legends and leaders, build meaningful relationships, and go through an entire grantmaking process. Participants leave the program empowered and equipped to address and impact their own schools and communities. Please read more about the program in our English and Spanish fliers. The Girls' Leadership Council is scheduled for July 23-29, 2017.
