WPFF Girls Leadership EdgeSM (GLE) is an evidence-based leadership skills development curriculum for middle school girls ages 13 to 15. Created and funded by the Women’s Professional Forum Foundation, the program was designed by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) in 2016. To date, more than 140 girls led by CCL facilitators have focused on self-awareness, defining purpose, communicating effectively, appreciating differences and resolving conflict. Girls participating in the program are finding their voice and learning to use it to lead in their communities.
GLE is getting high marks from the both middle school girl participants and facilitators. Many thanks to our partners at the YWCA in High Point, LeadershipLINKS Inc., Empowered Girls of NC, Greensboro Montessori School, Greensboro Parks and Recreation, Greensboro Day School, Kellin Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of High Point who collectively launched GLE in 2017.
