"One girl with courage is a revolution." -Girl Rising

Girl Rising is a feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. It spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. 

(NoTE: not all 9 stories are appropriate to certain ages. parents should always watch videos first, before showing to club.)

upper elementary CURRICULUM overview

"The curriculum addresses an array of issues ranging from inquiries of global scope such as, “How do economies grow when girls are educated?” to very basic questions like, “How do parents keep their daughters safe and cared for?” It gives students an opportunity to grapple with the very difficult questions posed by the barriers that stand between girls and their schooling. Through developing a better understanding of how family dynamics, poverty, political unrest, economic stability, and community expectations intersect to keep girls either in or out of school, students' views of the world will evolve." -Girl Rising Curriculum
