LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Application Deadline: May 15, 2021


Founded in 2015, Atlanta GLOW’s Summer Leadership Program is a camp experience for young women and girls like no other. Our program is for young women and girls from across the metro Atlanta area who want to learn more about themselves while building their competency around concepts such as civic responsibility, leadership development and social justice. Program instruction includes interactive lessons with the entire class as well as smaller mentor-led group activities while promoting sisterhood, community and an interest in social impact. Participants have the ability to collaborate with classmates within breakout sessions and participate in classroom-based activities and projects. 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 that matters to them.

EARN AND LEARN

Atlanta GLOW utilizes an Earn and Learn incentive program to award stipends to participants for goal achievement and successful program completion. Participants earn a stipend 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 stipends are distributed to participants on upon successful program completion. 

attendance policy

Our attendance policy allows for up to 1 excused  absence for our Mentoring and Leadership 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 stipend.
