Safer At Home Packets
When schools around the world closed their doors due to the threat of COVID-19, many of our partner organizations also had to postpone club meetings. To help provide girls with some light-hearted work to complete on their own, we created a series of at-home activity packets developed by the Global G.L.O.W. program team.

BLACK LIVES MATTER: RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES
With the second inaugural year of Global G.L.O.W.’s Black History Month Curriculum, we introduce a new theme: Empathy Across Cultures: Tools for Global Solidarity.
This curriculum is intended to provide educational and social-emotional opportunities for both our club members in the US, as well as our members worldwide.
While all club members will move through the same curriculum, learning about how social structures impact their lives and communities will look different in every region. For example, US club sessions will discuss the legacy of white supremacy’s impact on Black communities—how it has uniquely impacted their own lives, the lives of their friends, and the society around them. Across the world, club members from other countries will be able to discuss, in their own ways, how racism and imperialism have impacted their communities. After learning about the impact of these legacies in their specific region, club members will be introduced to the lived experiences of girls from another region, thus increasing their empathy and understanding of another person’s lived experience. By exploring the legacy of our histories, we can see how the past informs the present – and how similar we each are, though we each have unique cultures and traditions.
The Empathy Across Cultures curriculum will serve to commemorate Black History Month for our partners in the US, as well as introduce topics of white supremacy, colonization, and ethnic discrimination to our club members around the world. We want this curriculum to be both an opportunity to learn and a tool for connection. Members will understand their history better and how their history is interconnected to another’s, ultimately allowing girls across the world to come together today in the promise of a more accepting tomorrow.
Though written for a youth club setting the activities and information in this packet can be utilized in a home setting too.
