Inspiring girls to become self-advocates and leaders for the future.


Jumpstarting girls’ dreams through engaging activities and programs.

Girls Take Charge (GTC) provides a friendly, supportive environment that teaches girls to make independent decisions, discover and identify their special strengths, and gain leadership skills to impact others. Girls Take Charge is a highly interactive week that provides opportunities for girls to express their thoughts, ideas, and experiencesEach age track includes specialized curriculum focused on specific age groups. 

For over 15 years, Girls Take Charge has created meaningful and inspiring summer programs facilitated by a caring and nurturing team. We can't wait to learn more about your daughter and help her on her exciting empowerment journey.


For Summer 2022 we will be running private programs for schools.  If you would like to bring GTC to your school community, please contact us!


"What I love about GTC is that this program gives girls a chance to explore their strengths and virtues that can illuminate the path ahead. I can’t say enough about GTC and would encourage every mother (or father) to give this priceless gift to their daughter."

Amy Hayes, Global Head

"Girls Take Charge taught my daughter that it is cool to be a leader, admirable to inspire others, and empowering to be a team player. Seven years later, she is about to graduate from Villanova University and holds numerous key leadership positions on campus."

"Little did I know how much I would love GTC and that I would return for the next two summers as a participant, then become a counselor for the program years later. GTC taught me the skills to become the leader I am today,"
