About the event

Founded by the United Nations Foundation in 2010, Girl Up works with a global community of partners to achieve gender equality  worldwide. Girl Up Clubs are billed as champions for change that have  had a huge impact on girls around the world, empowering both people in  their own communities and adolescent girls in developing countries to  rise up. Through education, fundraising, advocacy and service, Girl Up  Club members develop the leadership skills necessary to make a positive  difference in the lives of girls everywhere.

Bainbridge Island Girl Up was founded by Merrill  Keating In December 2018 to provide an exciting and unique opportunity  for middle and high school girls on the island to engage and step up as  leaders on behalf of all girls and women in the world. She also wanted  to encourage high school members to serve as mentors to younger girls,  and for the club to work with adult women and advisors to advocate on  important issues. Finally, she wanted a forum where members could attend  and represent Girl Up at local, national and international events, and  learn or improve their advocacy, public speaking, fundraising, and  event-planning skills.

Girl Up clubs for Bremerton, Silverdale, Port Orchard, and Poulsbo were recently formed, and our open house welcomes all girls in those areas who are interested in joining to change the world!
