The Summit is an enriching, cross-cultural experience that aims to empower, educate, and activate the potential of young change makers. Through mentorship from Girl Up experts, thought leaders, celebrity champions and women trailblazers, Summit participants will uncover critical skills and be empowered to serve their communities as defenders of gender equality.
From July 15-17, 2019 more than 400 passionate youth advocates from around the world will gather for the 8th annual Girl Up Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. For three days, these young leaders will learn from influential speakers, engage in skill-based workshops, and participate in a day of action.
Benefits and Criteria
The registration fee covers the cost of all programming, meals (excluding dinner) and transportation for day of action service. The registration fee does NOT cover hotel room. Participants must reserve and pay for their accommodations separately. Only one individual can register at a time. This allows Girl Up to capture all the pertinent information for each participant including birthday, t-shirt size, and dietary needs.
The Leadership Summit is open to students aged 13-22, with a programming especially designed for students in high school. They encourage students of all genders and backgrounds to attend.
