Every year members of the Youth Advisory Board of You Grow Girl!, a non-profit organization based in Seattle, WA attend the annual Girl Up Leadership Summit hosted by the United Nations Foundation in Washington, D.C. Last year, they were the ONLY Washington State youth attendees at the summit!
Members have been working hard to raise funds to cover their travel and hotel expenses. From selling Brown Bear car wash tickets to hosting their inaugural Her Story Brunch. Please help them reach their goal so that no girl is left behind.
About the Summit:
From July 8-11, 2018 more than 350 passionate youth advocates from around the world will convene for the Summit. For three jam-packed days, these young changemakers will participate in leadership training, learn from influential speakers, engage in skills-based workshops, and lead an official lobby day on Capitol Hill.
Through mentorship by Girl Up experts, celebrity champions, women trailblazers, and gender equality experts, Summit participants will gain core leadership skills, training in community-building and advocacy, and experience interacting with members of Congress on Capitol Hill.
The Summit strives to empower, educate and embolden the potential of every youth leader there.
