We are excited about our new partnership with Global GLOW. GLOW stands for Girls Leading Our World. Founded in 2011, Global GLOW works with 5th-12th grade girls from around the world to empower them to realize their full potential. The organization aspires to empower girls through literacy, mentorship, and creative expression programs as well as foster confidence, self-esteem, leadership, and resilience in girls who are on the brink of success. GLOW maintains partnerships with many community-based organizations throughout the world where they serve over 10,000 girls each year. Their main goal is to open the minds of young girls to the world of opportunities for their success, and provide emotional support for a healthy inner self.
Over a dozen of our Breakthrough girls meet with GLOW every week at Marco Forster Middle School. 7th grader Loren states, “GLOW makes me feel better about myself and the facilitators are kind and inspiring.” Violeta, who is also in the 7th grade, enjoys attending GLOW meetings. She says, “I like to go because it makes me feel better when I’m having a bad day, and I’ve learned how to express myself.” We are glad that Global GLOW is helping us lead our students toward a bright, successful future.
