Vice President Kamala Harris told us she will not be the last woman to lead at one of the highest levels of office. Together, we all can work together to ensure that the next generation of Black women and girls are ready to step into new levels of leadership. Therefore, Atlanta GLOW's Leadership Circle is youth-centered leadership group for young women and girls that teaches concepts such as public policy, advocacy, activism and community organizing and provides youth with real-life opportunities to put these newly learned leadership and civic engagement skills to use. 


Our program meets twice monthly throughout the school year and features a variety of guest speakers, interactive presentations, and youth-led discussions that empower young, Black and low-income women and girls to influence local improvements in women's education, employment, housing and health outcomes. Our program also develops them to be the next generation of public servants and changemakers by providing creative service learning opportunities and a platform that amplifies their voices on the issues and policies that affect them, their families, and communities.
