Day of the Girl

On October 11, iEARN-USA is pleased to celebrate the inaugural Day of the Girl, a new effort that is:

highlighting, celebrating, discussing, and advancing girls lives and opportunities across the globe. When girls come together to talk about what really matters to us, we can teach other people–grownups, boys, girls all across the world–a new way of thinking about issues like gender stereotypes, discrimination, and opportunity.

Since 1988, iEARN has prioritized girls gaining equal access to educational resources and peers worldwide, regardless of the countries involved. Girls have embraced new technologies, social media, and iEARN’s project-based learning, which encourages girls to take action on global issues. Since the vast majority of the iEARN global community are K-12 educators, and most K-12 classroom educators are women, iEARN is led in most countries by women. These women serve as excellent role-models for girls considering becoming leaders in their schools and in their communities. In addition, the majority of iEARN participants and alumni in US State Department-supported exchange programs, such as Global Connections and ExchangeNSLI for Youth, and YESare young women who are building a strong network of tech-savvy and empathetic leaders worldwide.
