WHAT IS GET GIRLS GOING?

Get Girls Going (GGG) empowers Black teen girls to create social enterprises that solve problems in the world, and in doing so equips them to be leaders that challenge racial and gender inequities that prevent them from success. Get Girls Going runs a 6 week summer incubator for Black high school girls that have a passion for entrepreneurship, innovation and changemaking. Each summer, Black teen girls that have a business or a business idea to expand on are selected to be a part of the incubator through an intense application process. Each girl selected to be a part of the 6 week incubator program will be paired with a GGG entrepreneurship mentor and a GGG entrepreneurship advisor. In addition to the 6 week incubator, each girl is provided specialized GGG entrepreneurship support for the following academic year to continue to grow their business idea.
