GLW Staff Opportunities

Each summer, GLW offers two transformative nine-day leadership programs for 15 to 17 year old girls who have a demonstrated an interest in and commitment to making a difference in their communities and world. With Eleanor Roosevelt’s life and legacy as an exemplar, girls from all over the globe bring their passion and leadership potential to life through a series of interactive workshops, outdoor activities, and experiential field trips to places such as the United Nations and educational/historical sites of significance while building supportive relationships with inspiring female mentors and peers. The program is based at the Eleanor Roosevelt Center on the grounds of Val-Kill, Eleanor Roosevelt’s former home and retreat in Hyde Park, NY.
