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 4 week summer incuabator for black high school girls who are selected to take part in a youth entrepreneurship program. To provide support for each girl in our program, GGG hires college women to work closely with our girls to ensure programmatic success.
COVID 19 Update:
Summer 2021, Get Girls Going will be fully virtual and will be offering only remote programming. GGG mentors are required to attend a week of training in addition to the 4 weeks of programming. We ask that all applicants can commit at least 5 weeks (June 28, 2021 – July 30, 2021) with us. If you have any additional questions as you fill out this application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
