Girl Steering Committee

The Girl Steering Committee (GSC) is a unique opportunity for girls to hold a position of leadership in Girls For A Change. It is made up of approximately 15 girls, two women coaches and one staff liaison.

The GSC offers girls the ability to participate as a Girls For A Change Board Member or be a part of a Girls For A Change organizational committee. GSC members also function as spokesgirls for Girls For A Change and are trained for public speaking opportunities. Finally, the GSC supports the planning of the annual alumni event and alumna outreach. GSC members are required to:
-    Attend 80% of scheduled meetings
-    Participate in active leadership of sub-committee for events or other GFC projects as assigned
-    Complete 2 written articles for GFC Newsletter per year
The committee meets 5 times during the spring GFC program from January through May.  There may be additional meetings planned outside the required 5 meetings. Applications for the Girl Steering Committee are accepted between June 1st and December 15th.  It is recommended that girls have been on a Girl Action Team prior to applying for the GSC.

For more information about joining the GSC, please contact Ashley Smith, SV Program Director at: Ashley@girlsforachange.org or 408.529.9304. To apply to be on the 2011 Girl Steering Committee, download a Girl Steering Committee Application Here.
