Girls Leadership Academy
Girls Leadership Academy (GLA) is a 6-session workshop series for girls in 6th to 9th grade, to build leadership skills and create lasting social change through a community action project. Girls Leadership Academy engages girls in celebrating their heritage, investigating rights and responsibilities, practicing leadership skills, and tackling issues of concern. Girls deepen their understanding of girls and women as social change agents and of leadership as a collective process grounded in belonging to, and having responsibility for, one’s community.
GLA will meet at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria on Tuesdays from 4-6 PM starting on Oct. 22nd. Complete the registration form below and turn in to Girls Inc. office or to email@example.com.
The Teen Center provides interactive hands-on programming and activities that are essential life skills necessary for socio-economic independence. Most programming offered is derived from evidence-based curriculum researched by Girls Inc.’s national research team and is recognized as Identity Programming. Girls develop strong and habitual teamwork abilities through continual team building activities. A high level of focus is on instilling self-respect, respect for others, and community involvement which encourages bold leadership. We pride ourselves in offering a safe environment where girls can be themselves among caring, nurturing, encouraging, and trusted adults. Many of our girls refer to Girls Inc. as their home away from home.
