Find Out How You Can Empower Tomorrow’s Women Leaders — Be a Girls Talk Back Mentor!

Girls Talk Back is looking for female mentors who will support and guide its participants during its six-week course, which teaches girls ages 13-19, leadership, peacebuilding and social justice. At the program’s conclusion, participants will have the opportunity to present their projects and progress at a TED Talk-style forum.

The pilot program, co-sponsored by AAUW Honolulu, Ceeds of Peace and Women’s Fund of Hawaii,  will serve 15-20 girls residing in Waimānalo from June 10 to July 19, 2019.

AAUW’s Start Smart and Work Smart programs are designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation.
