Girls Gearing Up is a leadership and empowerment program where girls ages 13-17 get equipped with leadership skills, grow in their confidence, and connect with international female role-models and peers from around the world.
Our vision We envision a world in which girls and women from all cultures and backgrounds lift each other, are inspired to embark on their own unique journeys, and have the skills and confidence to positively impact the world.
Coming from an educational background, we've designed GGU's programs to provide guidance while providing plenty of space for girls to develop and explore their own individuality. At our summer academy and year-round events, we provide a safe and supportive environment for girls to learn new skills, challenge themselves, and make new friends - all while having plenty of fun.
Ever since my awesome experience at GGU last year, I've wanted to come back. I can definitely say it was the best week of my 2016. It helped me step out of my comfort zone, inspired me to speak up, state my opinion, and be myself! – Juna, 14
