Measuring GLOW’s Impact


How do we know GLOW is successful?

»Girls voluntarily re-enrol in our program
»Positive GLOW Girl Feedback forms

“I have been leading the GLOW girls program for over two years, and the continued enthusiasm is invigorating.”

Although GLOW was created to be fun and with sharing in mind, we found the program to have a powerful impact on the girls.  No two girls change in the same way. Therefore, we pride ourselves in using the following collection of assessment techniques to indicate such positive changes.


  • All GLOW girls set program goals – one personal and one fitness. Self- monitoring and evaluation of these goals are modelled and valued.
  • Optional: On the first day of the program, the girls complete a LAWSEQ Self-esteem Checklist. These outcomes are compared to the results of the checklist on the final day of the program.
  • Optional for Athletic Groups: Each girl will have an opportunity to evaluate the fitness activities that were included in the session.
  • Each girl is given a Thought Book which can be used as a tool to record thoughts, questions and feelings regarding the topics.
  • The final session includes time for each of the girls to complete an anonymous feedback form regarding their thoughts about the program and any changes they see in themselves.

"I found the GLOW guide to be well laid out and easy to navigate through. The unit had a clear purpose and each lesson was straightforward, yet unique. The girls were always engaged in the lesson and seemed to relate to the current topics. The lessons also emphasized the importance of the girls having an opportunity to share their experiences, ideas, thoughts and dreams. In this way, it felt girl-centered, as opposed to leader-centered. As a result, each week the girls seemed to be more comfortable and willing to share in the Girl's Circle. The guide also offered additional suggestions to try and had an appendix that supplemented the lesson. This is definitely a program that has a direct impact on a girl's self-awareness and leadership abilities!" GLOW Leader
