The mission of GLOW, or Girls Leading Our World, is to increase and develop the potential found in the young women of Moldova by providing them with skills necessary to become effective leaders in their communities. In order to achieve gender equality and to eliminate gender discrimination, it is important that both girls and boys are given life skills. Teaching Our Boys to Excel or TOBE, focuses on teaching male youth about communication, anti-discrimination, stopping the cycle of violence, and much more. This is done through pragmatic education that celebrates diversity, builds social competencies, and promotes English language literacy, leadership, teamwork, and problem solving.

This project seeks to empower youth throughout Moldova with four aspects of the program: 1) GLOWTOBE Camp 2017:a week -long summer leadership camp for youth ages 14-18 focusing on GLOWTOBE's six areas of concentration 2) Regional Mini-camps: consisting four regional two-day camps focused on training Club Leaders, Facilitators, and Mentors while promoting GLOWTOBE's six areas of concentration as well as how to establish GLOW Clubs 3) GLOW Clubs: establish monthly GLOW clubs lead by Moldovans which aim to promote GLOW's mission 4) GLOW Leadership Seminars: three one day civic engagement program which pairs young women ages 18-25 with professional women in order to develop their leadership skills and empower them to become confident and action-oriented leaders in the society.

Camp 2017 will not only serve as the capstone of collaboration between these three aspects of GLOWTOBE's 2016 but serve as a launching place for GLOW Club and Mini-camp activities. Moving forward the three tiers of GLOW TOBE will serve as one entity with each activity promoting and feeding into the others.

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