GLOW Club is the foundation of what we do.

GLOW Club provides girls around  the world with out-of-school safe spaces to learn and explore, and trusted and knowledgeable mentors to help them discover new techniques for self-empowerment, advocacy, and skill-building, so girls have the tools they need to grow into confident, self-aware, and successful women.

We’re not a “one-size-fits-all” organization.

Every girl and every community is unique. That’s why our innovative program modules offer girls and their mentors across the globe a flexible framework, so that after a foundational first year, our partners can make culturally appropriate and relevant choices best-suited to their specific needs and that of their communities.

We know education is (almost) everything.

Access to a quality education and one-on-one mentorship is crucial to ensuring every girl reaches her full potential. Our GLOW Club mentors are trained to support girls as they grow their confidence and discover how to express themselves and share their stories. And as girls boldly pursue their education and goals for their future, their mentors help them navigate the hurdles they face as they work to achieve their dreams.

We focus on the whole girl.

GLOW Club gives just as much importance to addressing girls’ emotional well-being as their educational needs, using principles of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Each program includes content that focuses on building awareness of mental and social health issues and how to deal with these challenges in positive and healthy ways.

For GLOW Club, we use the research based principles of Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) Core Competencies to help girls develop into well-rounded, empathetic, and intuitive individuals, who know how to go after the goals they want to achieve.

Every girl has varying talents, academic abilities, and areas of interest.

That’s why looking beyond standard markers of academic achievement and developing life-changing skills that are relevant in every country, every school, and every community—things like social awareness, empathy, impulse control, stress management, active listening and relationships—is key to our truly holistic approach.

Examples of core modules and topics of discussion for the 2020 program include:

  • Self-Advocacy, Self-Awareness, & Self-Management

  • Social Awareness & Empathizing with Others

  • Responsible Decision-Making

  • The Power of Girls

  • The Importance  of Storytelling & Telling My Own Story

When every girl has the opportunity to develop awareness of her own emotions, thoughts, strengths, and limitations, as well as how her behavior affects others, she is more likely to build positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and learn how to integrate all of her skills to effectively and ethically face any obstacle in the future.

GLOW Club gives girls the tools they need to become tomorrow’s global leaders. Will you join us?
