National Tour

National Tour Details

Gfctour_map During the GFC National Tour, presented  by The Sephora Project, we will train more than 2,500 girls at schools and organizations throughout the country with our Change Your World Trainings. The trainings are free to schools and community organizations. During a 90-minute or 2-hour workshop, girls will learn about social change, discover a diverse group of social change role models, and get user-friendly tools and resources for starting change on their own! Each participant will receive GFC’s free Change Your World Action Kit, which is a how-to-guide for creating social change from start to finish. The workshop is followed by meaningful and interactive activities hosted by the sponsors of the National Tour.

Girl Summits - THESE TRAININGS WERE HELD IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER 2008
We'll be offering the training at Change Your World Trainings in the following cities:

  • San Francisco Bay Area
  • Phoenix
  • Baltimore
  • Philadelphia Metro Area
  • New York City
  • Richmond, VA

Check out the schools that are confirmed for trainings here.

Two GFC trainers facilitate each training. Learn more about our trainers here!

Girl Action Zones
During the tour, we'll stop at Girl Action Zones, which are interactive gatherings where girls and women learn about social change and the power they have to create it. Girls and women will discover their inner social change agent and their inner beauty at participating SEPHORA stores throughout the country. These 3 to 4 hour events inside the Sephora stores will include opportunities to discover what social change means, brainstorm what issues are important to women and girls and learn about ways GFC can support girls and women in creating change. GFC representatives will be on hand to guide girls and women through this process. There will also be an opportunity to sign up for GFC’s Action Network and be part of a network of women and girls throughout the world who are working on change projects. In addition, girls and women will have the chance to share what they are passionate about and how they want to address the issue they want to change by creating photo and video diaries that will be posted online on GFC’s Action Network.
