Key Information

Every Girl can be a Leader.

Girl Up is working toward a world where girls have equal value, access, and opportunities to reach their fullest potential. We’ve impacted the lives of 95,000 girls through our 5,000 Clubs in more than 130 countries and all 50 U.S. states. 

As our most active supporters, Girl Up Club members make a difference in the lives of girls around the world, empowering their communities near and far. Girl Up provides a platform and guides girls along their journey from leader to changemaker with specialized programming in organizing, advocacy, fundraising, and communications. Our programming exposes girl leaders to issues at the intersection of gender equality and sports, STEM, storytelling, and more – we position girls to be leaders across industries where women are underrepresented.

When girls take part in Girl Up programs, they experience higher self-confidence, compassion, empathy, social collaboration and civic participation.
