Team up with organizations for girls
The Girls Opportunity Alliance is thrilled to collaborate with nonprofit organizations that have made significant commitments to supporting adolescent girls’ education around the world. Here are some ways they are taking action.
Girl Scouts of the USA
Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is the largest organization for girls in the world with a mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts provides a 21st century experience for girls designed to help them learn to be leaders in today’s world.
As part of the organization’s Global Leadership programming, Girl Scouts will launch a national Girls’ Access to Education Civic Engagement Toolkit for girls, ages kindergarten through 12th grade. This toolkit will provide girls with opportunities to learn about and examine the issue of girls’ education from both global and national perspectives, including with regard to access, quality, and achievement.

Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through direct service and advocacy. The organization’s research-based programming, delivered by 81 local affiliates in the United States and Canada, gives girls the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to be healthy, educated, and independent.
In collaboration with the Girls Opportunity Alliance, Girls Inc. will integrate global citizenship into the Girls Inc. Leadership and Community Action program, encouraging girls to understand their ability to represent the voices of girls around the world who are denied access to an education.

Through more than 2,200 Girl Up Clubs in over 100 countries, Girl Up trains girls to become gender equality advocates and activists and create tangible change for girls everywhere.
In support of the Girls Opportunity Alliance, Girl Up will deploy its global network of Girl Up Clubs and their thousands of members to engage actively in the issue of girls’ education. With a specific focus on issues related to educational access, Girl Up members will work with communities and government leaders to ensure that girls are connected to the safe spaces that facilitate high-quality learning and cultivate girl-focused leadership.
