About Girls Leadership:
For over 15 years, Girls Leadership has awakened thousands of girls to a life of authentic leadership. Girls Leadership teaches the skills to be brave, resilient and connected – equipping girls to make change in their world.
We teach in-person programs across the US, produce free educational content and conduct original research, such as our upcoming project, “Closing the Gap: Understanding How Girls of Color Become Leaders.” Our in-person programs teach girls, educators, and parents the core practices of emotional intelligence, healthy relationships, and assertive self-expression. Taught by professional, salaried instructors, all Girls Leadership programs use interactive lessons and educational theatre-based techniques to help girls connect with their emotions and practice the tools of building healthy, authentic relationships. The courses are age-appropriate and progressive, following girls’ developmental needs from grade school through high school. We ask people to join our team who are skilled, experienced professionals in their field, but this is only part of what will make you successful as a Girls Leadership team member. We also seek team members who are authentic, seek to contribute to an inclusive community and build strong relationships with fellow team members, Girls Leadership clients and partners.
