Global Fund for Women 2023 Adolescent Girls Advisory Council Program Worldwide

Global Fund for Women is looking for young feminist activists to join the Adolescent Girls Advisory Council (AGAC). Global Fund for Women is a global feminist fund that envisions a world where movements for gender justice have transformed power and privilege for a few into equity and equality for all.

We fund bold, ambitious, and expansive gender justice movements to create meaningful change that will last beyond our lifetimes.

The Adolescent Girls Advisory Council (AGAC) plays a critical role in finding, funding, and amplifying girl-led groups and expanding their leadership, activism, and movement-building.
