Girl Up is a global leadership development initiative, positioning girls to be leaders in the movement for gender equality. With resources in five languages and more than 3,000 Girl Up Clubs in over 100 countries, we’ve trained 48,000 girls of all backgrounds to create tangible change for girls everywhere. Girl Up provides leadership training and gives girls tools to become gender equality advocates and activists. Through our programs in STEM and storytelling, girls broaden their social impact skill set to better prepare them for success in whatever their futures hold. Our girl leaders create real policy change at local and national levels, raise millions of dollars to support programs for girls around the world through our United Nations partners, and build community-based movements for social change.

We focus on issues at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals, build initiatives across sectors to solve problems at scale, and engage citizens who seek action. Founded in 1998 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner, the UN Foundation works with philanthropic, corporate, government, and individual partners.
