We are inviting 20 young women to participate in our academy. All you need to do is apply and hopefully, you will be the one invited to join a weekend full of learning and growth.
The Leadership Academy which Girl Power hosts in collaboration with Barça Foundation will be a three-day program filled with workshops, activities, sport and will provide an opportunity to build your network and make new friends. The Academy is dedicated to developing tomorrow´s leaders of sport where it provides unique opportunities for female leaders from Europe to step up, take the lead and make an impact.
The Girl Power International Leadership Academy program is one of the main projects of our organization and is created to improve social inclusion and increase participation for females in sport and beyond.
The Girl Power International Leadership has Four stages:

The academy is a mixture of activities, sport, and workshops. All workshops have clear learning outcomes and are tailored to maximize learning. They will be challenging, constructive, and highly interactive and each participant will produce a Personal Development Plan. Here the goal is to improve your leadership behavior, career strategies, future opportunities as well as consolidating learning.
2. Grassroots Coaching/Training
After graduation/completion of Girl Power Int. Leadership Academy you will get support from Girl Power to establish your own local team where you will begin to coach/train another set of girls, age 13-15. This will be within your own local community.
After completing the Leadership Academy, you will receive support from your mentors for 6 months. Mentors will provide 1-hours sessions each month to help you in your leadership journey. At the end of this period, you will know more about how to make women own the pitch.

Next year, the newly graduated coaches and leaders will be invited (with their created teams) to participate at the Girl Power Social Festival. The Festival will include music, dancing, sports, art exhibitions, and panel debates.
