Girls Empowerment Leadership Initiative

April 20 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

Welcome to the Girls Empowerment Leadership Initiative – also known as GELI!

Here at the MCSW, we’re committed to building the future of the Commonwealth – starting by investing in our girls and gender expansive youth ages 14-22. Our programs help us guide policy recommendations to legislators and government agencies that will directly address inequities impacting women and girls to enhance opportunities for them in all aspects of life.

Are you 20+ and interested in volunteering as a youth leader? Email MCSWgeli@mass.gov

Programming will take place from 10am-3pm. Lunch, snacks and transportation will be provided!

Participants will explore their leadership styles, gain confidence to advocate for issues within their communities and expand their legislative advocacy skills by attending the full day of in person activities.
