The National Coalition of Girls' Schools, a leading advocate for girls' education with a distinct commitment to the transformative power of all girls' schools, is joining Girl Up as a founding partner. It acts at the forefront of educational thought, collaborating and connecting globally with individuals, schools and organizations dedicated to empowering girls to be influential contributors to the world.
Throughout the upcoming year, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools will engage its member schools and students to participate in the Girl Up ‘Unite for Girls’ Tour. The National Coalition of Girls’ Schools community will have opportunities to host and participate in Girl Up events across the country and will play a key role in making a difference in the lives of millions of adolescent girls across the globe.
Formed in 1991, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools envisions a world where every girl will have access to the education and resources she needs to develop into a competent and confident woman, one who is equipped to assume whatever role she seeks for herself, wherever in the world. Its membership includes 140 schools in the United States as well as affiliates in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa.
