Girls Leadership equips girls with the skills to exercise the power of their voice. We offer online workshops and seminars designed to teach girls, educators, and parents the core practices of emotional intelligence, healthy relationships, and assertive self-expression. Taught by professional, salaried instructors, all of our programs use interactive lessons and theatre-based techniques to help girls connect with their emotions and practice the tools of building healthy, authentic relationships. The courses are age-appropriate and progressive, following girls’ developmental needs from grade school through high school. Co-founded by educator and social entrepreneur Simone Marean and bestselling author and educator Rachel Simmons, we are a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization providing transformational programs to girls, their parents, and their educational communities to ensure lasting impact.


In our Girl & Grown-Up workshops and After School Programs, girls will learn how to listen to and respect their internal voice, explore and celebrate their identities, build healthy friendships at home and online, and begin to become leaders.
