Become a GLOW Leader Today!
By becoming a GLOW leader you will help girls become aware of their strengths and provide them with the tools fundamental to prominent leadership.
The GLOW program integrates and cultivates integrity, self-worth, honesty, pride, and responsibility.

Our user-friendly guides contain step-by-step instructions on engaging a GLOW group through discussions and creative art/movement activities.
The GLOW program is easily adaptable to your own unique setting by including a GLOW CIRCLE with fitness or without the fitness component.
