Summary

GLOW Leadership Academy 2014 will empower 75 teenage Bulgarian girls by giving them the social skills needed to think beyond the traditional limitations which our man dominated society still has.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The main social issue GLOW Leadership Academy addresses is the social integration and acceptance of women to be key figures in Bulgarian society. The current barrier to this problem is the insufficient standard of teaching in our schools that does not reflect the real needs of our generation, which is why we took it upon ourselves to teach our participants about some key social topics that are overlooked in teaching, such as: leadership, discrimination, self-esteem and combating intolerance.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Leadership Academy is a unique seven-day experience which, every year, brings together 75 young ladies aged between 14 and 18. It promotes the belief that every young woman has her own potential, waiting to be unleashed. Through a variety of interactive sessions and simulations the girls work on improving their self-esteem and leadership skills. Leadership Academy GLOW is a rewarding and exciting transformational journey which teaches its travelers to dream, believe and act!

Potential Long Term Impact

Knowledge is passed through the generations of the Academy by the participants becoming trainers for future events. All participants are encouraged to also spread it in their communities empowering more girls through trainings and social events. The initiatives of the GLOW Leadership Academy alumni in 2013 reached about 4500 people from 9 different communities. They were nominated for "Voluntary Initiative of the Year" national award and "European Charlemagne Youth Prize - 2014".
