Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) is a summer camp for girls in Ukraine ages 14-18, which focuses on teaching campers about gender equality and self-development. Camp participants will learn about gender equality and relevant gender issues in Ukraine, like women in the workplace, diversity, intersectionality, and more. Campers will also develop leadership skills through interactive lessons, informal activities and sports games, and working with a team and counselors throughout the week. Additionally, campers will learn about women's health, specifically safe sex, healthy relationships, and the HIV/AIDs epidemic in Ukraine, in a comfortable and supportive environment. At the end of camp, campers will have a greater sense of self-esteem, tolerance, and understanding of the topics above, as well as fun memories and new friends and contacts all over the country. Campers will be encouraged to continue projects after camp, and be taught about project design and management during camp, as well. For example, campers will return back to their homes and schools and conduct their own seminars or mini-camps about GLOW-related topics. This will improve the project's sustainability and help the network of empowered, passionate young women grow in order to improve gender equality in Ukraine and spread friendship. The camp will be held in Western Ukraine and conducted alongside with the Ukrainian NGO which is dedicated to continuous improvement of their city and country through service and development. Overall, the camp is a unique opportunity for girls to learn about pertinent gender issues, build friendships, and become stronger leaders.

This project has been designed to expand access to education for girls in Ukraine as part of the Let Girls Learn Program. Learn more at letgirlslearn.peacecorps.gov.
