OVERVIEW

Organizing for Social Change

YOU can make a difference in the life of a girl and start a movement wherever you are. What often starts with organizing community meetings, bake sales, penny drives, film screenings, and raffles soon becomes organizing to create spaces for girls on college campuses to combat sexual assault, to change gender-biased dress codes in schools, and to raise the legal age of marriage for girls, as you begin to truly lean into your abilities to organize for change.

What do Girl Up Clubs do?

Girl Up Clubs’ passion for gender equality impacts not only the people in their own communities, but girls around the world. As our most active leaders, they organize local events and activities, and participate in action-based Club challenges on issues that intersect with gender equality. With more than 3,300 clubs registered in nearly 120 countries and all 50 U.S. states, Girl Up Clubs are champions for change.

Through organizing, storytelling, advocacy, and fundraising, Girl Up Club members hone the leadership skills needed to transform themselves and make a positive difference in the lives of girls everywhere. Any student – middle school, junior high, high school, homeschooled, or in college – can start a Club.
