Teen Advisors


Voices of Now

Girl Up’s Board of Teen Advisors are the heart and soul of Girl Up. They are passionate changemakers who together spread and fuel our work ensuring we stay authentic to our mission and bring the voice of this generation to the forefront. Teen Advisors are central to all Girl Up decision-making by advising on strategy and offer guidance for our movement to advance global gender justice. 

Each Teen Advisor Board is a culturally and globally diverse group, who serve as the face and voice of the Girl Up movement. Teen Advisors serve a one-year term with Girl Up and share the common goal of creating change to advance global gender equality. Each class of Teen Advisors participates in 12 virtual, monthly training sessions and hopefully at least one in-person meeting.  

Since its inception in 2010, more than 220 girls have gone through this global program. Collectively, Girl Up Teen Advisors have raised more than $500,000, completed more than 7,000 hours of community service, hosted hundreds of events in their communities around the world and performed thousands of advocacy actions at local, national, and global levels. They have also represented Girl Up on some of the world’s biggest stages, been integrated in critical global moments, and featured in some of the top media publications.
