Due to COVID-19 and following guidelines set forth by Governor Murphy, our GLI program is going virtual this summer. The following page details our regular GLI offerings so that you can join us when we are back together for summer 2021. In the meantime, we hope to see you remotely!
A day at GLI is filled with exciting opportunities for the OWLs (Outstanding Women Leaders) to explore leadership opportunities and to develop self-confidence. GLI is also a time to build relationships and have fun with new friends.

Going to the Girls’ Leadership Institute was a wonderful experience for me.

I learned a lot about leadership and how I react in different situations. Participating in GLI has helped me greatly and I will never forget the experiences I had there and all the new friends I made. -Recent Participant
