JOIN US FOR A FRIDAY NIGHT OUT WITH A DIFFERENCE!
HELP US TO EMPOWER TEENAGE GIRLS IN THE NORTH WEST TO LEARN, LEAD AND THRIVE
Growing up a girl in the UK is no picnic, in fact, according to a report published by Plan International in Sept 2016 girl power is decidedly lacking if you live in the North. Of the worst 10 places to grow up a girl 7 out of the bottom 10 places highlighted are in the North including Manchester, Liverpool, Salford, Blackpool and Knowsley. Moreover not one Northern city made it to the top 10 best places.
We are failing our girls and we need to do better if we are serious about nurturing the female talent pipeline and ensuring young women play a part in the Northern Powerhouse economy.
Girls Out Loud is a multi-award winning social enterprise based in Manchester on a mission to raise the aspirations of teen girls. Launched in 2010 we have delivered our interventions including our Big Sister mentoring programme in 35 schools and impacted the lives of over 5000 teenage girls and we want to share our unique approach and success to date with the people of this amazing region.
We are hosting our first ever black tie fund raising ball on Friday 29th September at The Hilton, Manchester as a way of celebrating and sharing some amazing stories of some of the people who have been involved in our work to date including, corporate supporters, advocates, ambassadors, schools, Big Sister mentors and most importantly the teenage girls we exist to inspire.
We would love you to join us for a night of celebration, inspiration, and fun as we share with you the need for our work and the successes that make it all worthwhile. Together we can put the North West towns and cities at the top of the league as we invest in teenage girls and empower them to learn, lead and thrive and step up to be the shining stars we know they are capable of being.
