Consultoras Adolescentes

At Girl Up, Teen Advisors are leading Girl Up’s “by girls, for girls” movement, carrying out advocacy goals, providing feedback on our strategy and energizing others to take action for girls around the world.

Quem são as Consultoras Adolescentes Girl Up?

The Teen Advisor program exemplifies Girl Up’s core value of being girl-led and girl-driven. Composed of a widely diverse group of teenage girls, Teen Advisors are passionate changemakers who together spread and fuel Girl Up’s work. Teen Advisors are central to all Girl Up decision-making by advising on strategy and serve as leading voices for our work to advance global gender equality. Para apoiar as Consultoras Adolescentes nessa tarefa, o Girl Up oferece treinamentos focados em habilidades, oportunidades de desenvolvimento profissional, aprendizado prático e, mais importante, relacionamentos pessoais com a equipe.

Since the first Teen Advisor class began in 2010, more than 136 girls have developed their leadership skills through this global program. Collectively, Girl Up Teen Advisors have raised more than $500,000, completed more than 7,000 hours of service, hosted hundreds of events in their communities around the world and performed more than 500 advocacy actions at local, national, and global levels.
