Applications are open for the Get Girls Going Teen Entrepreneurs Summer Program 2022. Get Girls Going (GGG) empowers Black teen girls to create social enterprises that solve problems in the world, and in doing so equips them to be leaders that challenge racial and gender inequities that prevent them from success.
Get Girls Going runs a 6 week summer incubator for Black high school girls who are selected to take part in a youth entrepreneurship program. To provide support for each girl in the program, GGG hires college women to work closely with the girls to ensure programmatic success.
