Atlanta GLOW’s Young Women's Leadership Program is for young women and girls who want to learn more about themselves while building their confidence and competency around concepts such as civic responsibility, leadership development and social change. Promoting sisterhood, community and an interest in social impact, our 2022 workshops include topics such as democracy and voting rights, community action, and grassroots organizing with program instruction that incorporates interactive lessons with the entire class as well as smaller mentor-led group activities. By the end of the program, participants are charged with creating a project, whether through art, literature or technology, teaching their peers about a cause or social issue that matters to them.
This is a 4-week program hosted on Saturdays (10:00 am - 12:00 pm) from June 18 - July 16, 2022.
Our Summer 2022 cohort will be hosted virtually.

EARN AND LEARN
Atlanta GLOW utilizes an Earn and Learn incentive program to reward participants for goal achievement and successful program completion. Participants earn a cash incentive for each curriculum component they successfully complete (e.g., training and mentoring sessions), allowing them to supplement their income and/or build assets as they make learning, development and personal growth a priority. They can also earn bonus dollars by completing volunteer projects or community service activities. All incentives are distributed to participants on upon successful program completion.
Our attendance policy allows for up to 1 excused absence for our Mentoring, Leadership and Financial Literacy Programs; and up to 2 excused absences for our Life Skills Training Program. We understand that emergencies happen and students may need to be excused from class. We ask that students communicate any anticipated absence with our program staff and make arrangements to make up any missed work. Girls who miss the maximum number of program sessions allowable may be removed from the program and/or forfeit part or all of the allotted program incentives.
