You are about to become part of a worldwide movement in empowering girls in your community!
The Girls Leading Others Wisely (GLOW) program will give every girl an opportunity to be strong, confident and physically fit. GLOW will inspire girls of all ethnic, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds to be prominent and positive leaders.
*When the word “girl” is used in GLOW, such as in our name, we refer to everyone who identifies as female. Our goal is to use gender-inclusive language; however, there are times when the word “girl” is used, such as when referring to research specific to females or when quoting someone.
