Global G.L.O.W. ignites the power of women and girls as a force for global transformation.

Global G.L.O.W. strengthens and amplifies girls’ voices as a catalyst for the discourse on gender equality. Our dynamic mentorship model emphasizes social-emotional learning (SEL) with an innovative theme-driven curriculum to build self-esteem, leadership and resilience. G.L.O.W. programs combine transformational literacy, creative expression with consistent mentor relationships to empower girls in underserved communities. The organization is recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

Transforming Girls’ Lives Locally, Nationally, and Globally

Global G.L.O.W. operates programs locally, nationally and globally to empower girls to become a potent force for change in the world. In Santa Ana, CA, Global G.L.O.W.’s worldwide headquarters, girls and young women mentors come together at the G.L.O.W. House to engage in programming where they create, learn and grow together.  The G.L.O.W. House and its California satellite sites serve girls in grades 5-12 through daily after school programming which includes research-based mentoring, literacy and art activities that are designed to support a girl’s creative innovation, self-expression and social-emotional development.

In addition to G.L.O.W. programming in California, Global G.L.O.W. operates throughout the U.S. and in 26 countries in Africa, Asia, Caribbean and Central/South America in collaboration with our New York based non-profit partner, LitWorld, through our joint initiative, The HerStory Campaign.
