Girls Leadership Council

The Girls Leadership Council runs the length of the school year, with members attending monthly meetings online or at Paulsdale. At the meetings, girls explore issues affecting women in the US and around the world. They engage in thoughtful conversations and activities that help them learn how to be effective advocates and allies as they work towards awareness and positive social change. They practice public speaking and networking skills, work with professional female mentors, and attend exciting events that in the past have included the International Day of the Girl at the UN, the Alice Paul Equality Gala, and trips to Washington, D.C., to meet with elected officials and professional advocates and lobbyists. GLC membership is restricted to female-identifying high school students.
