GIRLS TALK BACK
Tackling the Issue
Girls Talk Back, the leadership program for girls 14-18 years old and sponsored in collaboration with AAUW Honolulu Branch, Women’s Fund of Hawaii and Ceeds of Peace, has completed 7 Cohorts since its inception in the summer of 2019. Each Cohort had up to 15 girls in the program, and each girl completed an action plan, addressing an issue within the community.
In our fourth year, we served 19 young women from two islands and 12 different schools. This year, we ran two 4-week cohorts - one virtual in June and one in-person in July. Find out more about the girls' action plans and outcome in the GTB Summer 2022 Report.
Join us for our fifth annual summer girls leadership program! This year's program will consist of two separate cohorts. Cohort 1 will be fully virtual and cohort 2 will be in-person at UH-Hilo. Applicants may only participate in one cohort:
Cohort 1 (virtual): June 5 - June 29, Monday - Thursday, 9am - 11am
Cohort 2 (in-person in Hilo): July 3 - July 28, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 9am - noon
Apply by May 5, 2023.
