The Girls' World Forum is the third and final event in a series of forums that are part of the WAGG's global centenary celebrations. It is a girl-led event with an 18 member girl planning team working to develop the program and its activities. The event will take place July 12-16, 2012 (travel days will be July 11 and July 17) in Chicago, IL. Our council will sponsor two girls. Girls who apply must be ages 14-18 at the time of the event. The Girls' World Forum will focus on the United Nations' eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDG's embraces the WAGGS mission of empowering girls and young women to develop to their fullest potential as engaged and responsible global citizens and address important issues that affect girls, young women, and their communities. Some of the eight MDGs are ending hunger and poverty, empowering girls, and environmental sustainability.
The cost to the girls for this event will be $500 each. An adult chaperone will take the girls to the event. They will fly together out of a central area of our council. All costs (hotel, flight, meals, and program activities) will be included in this price. Council will subsidize the rest.
The deadline to register for this event is January 25, 2012.
