About this Event

Since 2010, GIRL has inspired and empowered over 1,000 middle and high school girls throughout Northern Virginia and the DC metro area with a mission to mentor and empower teen girls for future success through promoting academic excellence, leadership skills, community service, career preparation, and self–esteem. GIRL has presented 6 annual career conferences and co-created the award-winning STEM summer camp, For Girls of Color Underrepresented in STEM (FOCUS), at George Mason University in partnership with the College of Science, which has been featured in The Washington Post and on Good Morning Washington. In addition, GIRL has hosted monthly workshops that were led by professional women and focused on academic success strategies, college and career preparation, leadership development, healthy relationships, health and fitness, self-esteem, and entrepreneurship.

In 2014, many of GIRL’s participants became published writers as GIRL released its first book, Pearls of Wisdom for Girls by Girls, in which the girls expressed their creativity and feelings about their dreams, career interests, and self-confidence through writing poems, short stories, essays, and open letters. In service to the community, GIRL has hosted 3 MLK Day of Service events in partnership with the City of Fairfax Commission for Women, and girls have also collected and donated holiday food baskets to Second Story and made Christmas cards for residents of a local nursing home.

This event will celebrate and recognize GIRL participants, alumnae, high school graduating seniors, sponsors and influential community members.

The Pearls of Wisdom panel will feature women who will tell their career journeys and provide advice for following dreams, being a leader, and achieving success in fields where women are underrepresented. The panelists will also address the importance of mentoring and role models in order to achieve those goals.
