LGL Recommendation 2020-21
Louisville Girls Leadership (LGL) is a program for all cis and trans girls, as well as non-binary folks who are comfortable in a space that centers the experience of girls. It is a place where sophomores from across the city can enhance their journey of self-development through education, advocacy, and action.

The experience leaves participants with critical life and leadership skills that will instill the necessary confidence to tap into their vast potential and, in turn, become a source of power to create positive change in the community. Sophomores from every public and private high school in Jefferson County are invited to apply to the LGL Class of 2020-21. Up to forty (40) sophomores will be selected from the applicant pool to join the program and embark on this learning journey for the upcoming year!

+ LGL 20-21 will be entirely VIRTUAL. Students will need to have access to wireless internet (Wifi), and a laptop, tablet, or phone. However, if they do not have access to these tools, staff will provide any necessary resources to participants. Lack of access will not hinder a student's acceptance.
+ At minimum, LGL sessions will take place bi-weekly on Sunday's via Zoom for two hours, in addition to hosting webinars and opportunities to bond with their fellow LGL peers.
+ Program Topics Include
- Anti-Racism & Anti-Oppression
- Women's Empowerment & Intersectional Feminism
- Mental Health & Self-Care
- College & Career Readiness
- Environmental Justice
- & More!

In addition to meeting the schedule requirements, the ideal student might possess some of the traits listed below:

- A student who may not have had the opportunity to lead in the past, but has the zeal and potential to do so
- A responsible work ethic and dedication to their commitments
- An interest in developing leadership, networking, and communication skills and working with diverse groups
- A cultural or community leader within their school or other parts of Jefferson County
- A passion for social justice issues and strong desire to be an advocate in their community
