Girls' Leadership Worldwide Empowers Girls to be Principled and Socially Conscious Global Leaders

Each summer, GLW holds two exciting and transformational nine-day programs for high school girls who desire to make a difference in their own lives, their communities and the world.

With Eleanor Roosevelt's life and legacy as a model, girls diverse in culture and geography bring their passion and leadership potential to life.
