With the help of your generous donation for Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Leadership Academy 2019, the team of young volunteers touched the lives of 65 girls from 23 different communities from all over Bulgaria!
Now, getting closer to the end of the year, we have actively started working on the 2020 edition of GLOW Leadership Academy. This is going to be a very special year for the GLOW team and for all the GLOW supporters as we will be celebrating 20 years anniversary of changing the lives of Bulgaria girls!
The staff team of the Academy has just been selected among the best participants from previous years and has already started its first training tasks focused on techniques for successful teamwork. The staff members, girls 16 to 18 years old from 13 different towns and villages around Bulgaria, will be responsible for leading group activities for next year’s campers as well as supporting the overall organization of the Academy.
Stay tuned as we have prepared a lot of surprises for all our supporters to celebrate together the 20th anniversary of Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Leadership Academy!

Less than two weeks from Leadership Academy GLOW 2019 the team is getting all the final details ready. Excited to meet the new participants our 25 peer trainers are working on their topic presentations and the logistics of the training.
What have they planned? A lot of interactive activities, sessions, and workshops to introduce the 65 teenage participants to leadership, teamwork, communication, goal setting, and self-esteem, as well as important social elements as sustainable living, community work, and voluntarism. Special guests will inform the young Bulgarian girls on a large scale of educational opportunities they can profit from and guide how to do it.

Girls supporting girls all around Bulgaria
By Margarita Kaleynska - Chair of the board
March is a month dedicated to women and the volunteer trainers in GLOW Leadership Academy spend it spreading the GLOW spirit around Bulgaria. The 16 teenage girls organized discussions all over the country for their female peers to show them the support and the motivation needed to go further in their education as well as in their dreams.
At the same time, the GLOW alumni had the chance to apply for the mentorship program organized by GLOW Leadership Academy. The program is a 6-month venture with pairs more experienced GLOW alumnae with a younger such, aiming at inspiring, supporting and empowering the girls, who have already gone through our summer program successfully, by creating a unique schedule, tailored towards the mentor's and mentee's needs.
