The GGU International Leadership Academy
*Applications close May 10, 2021*
Due to COVID-19 safety protocols we will have to stick to a smaller group in 2021. It is our goal to include EVERY interested girl in the Girls Gearing Up network. If there is not space for you at the 2021 Academy in Berlin, we'll try to find another way for you to get involved!
The Girls Gearing Up 2021 International Leadership Academy will be held from July 4-11, 2021 at the Berlin Brandenburg International School in Kleinmachnow, just outside of Berlin.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and with the goal of continuing to serve motivated teen changemakers around the world, Girls Gearing Up will offer its 2021 Academy as a hybrid event. Our main hub in Berlin will collaborate daily with smaller hubs in Malawi and India to allow for cross-cultural exchange. We will use a mix of online and locally implemented activities to support our international cohort as they amplify local stories and diverse perspectives both in their communities and around the world.
If you would like to learn about the hygiene protocols we will be following to keep everyone safe, please feel free to
get in touch!
ACADEMY TUITION FEE : 400 EUR
Financial assistance available in certain cases upon request. Please inquire for more information.
