Meet an awesome club making a huge difference for Girl Up. Led by President Kelsey Baez and Vice-President Rebecca Ruvulcaba, the Glen A. Wilson Girl Up Club in Southern California has more 60 members – including a number of guys! (See, guys, you can get involved in Girl Up, too!)

The club has organized some cool fundraisers: they hosted a bake sale and organized a Threads of Hope fundraiser, during which they sold bracelets made by families in the Philippines. The club incorporated some sportiness into their events this past year, too: they volunteered at a Girls on the Run Los Angeles 5K race during spring 2013 and also took part in the Orange County 5K to raise funds for Girl Up with fellow Southern California Coalition members.

To broadcast the importance of girls’ issues, the club hosted an informational booth at its local American Youth Soccer Organization’s registration day.

Go team!

 

Girl Up Changemaker

Michelle Obama

It’s not every day that you get to hang out with the First Lady of the United States. But in June 2013, Michelle Obama and Girl Up supporters did just that. During a trip to South Africa, Mrs. Obama hosted an event with a group of youth, and Girl Up supporters joined via a Google+ Hangout. In response to a question from Girl Up Champion Victoria Justice, Mrs. Obama said that she wants her daughters to “learn to love learning. I don’t want my daughters to be afraid of learning. I want them to be confident learners. And I want them to find the passion in education,” which she also hopes for youth around the world.
