No matter their background, girls have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Girl Up brings a diverse group of young ladies together to discuss current community and global issues and obstacles faced by girls and women. A primary club goal is to foster a supportive nurturing environment while instilling confidence, leadership qualities, advocating for women’s empowerment and rights locally and globally. Girl Up is open to all!
Girl Up was founded by the United Nations Foundation in 2010, and continues to work across a global community of partners to achieve gender equality worldwide.
