What is GlobalGirl Media

GlobalGirl Media (GGM) develops the voice and media literacy of teenage girls and young women, ages 14-22, in under-served communities by teaching them to create and share digital journalism designed to improve scholastic achievement, ignite community activism and spark social change. Through mentoring, training and access to a worldwide network of trans-media distribution partners, GlobalGirl Media harnesses the power of new digital media to empower young women to bring their often-overlooked perspectives onto the global media stage. By turning up the volume of girl’s voices globally, GlobalGirl Media seeks to promote freedom of expression and strengthen substantive journalism that addresses historically marginalized voices, while building self-esteem, leadership capacity, and 21st century skills. Founded in 2010, we are active in South Africa, Morocco, Kosovo, Chicago, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.

HOW WE WORK

GGM believes training young, diverse women in digital media journalism is important to developing strong, healthy communities. For youth, particularly young women, education, feelings of self-worth, and expression are all key to changing the entrenched stereotypes and values that hold them back, and keep them from succeeding in media and technology fields. GGM programming intentionally works exclusively with girls to provide a safe, nurturing environment where they can lead, speak their minds, and learn how to close the gender/technology divide.

  • GGM hosts a website that leverages connected learning and new technologies to give girls a platform for creating a global community.
  • GGM partners with schools, after-school programs, NGO’s and community centers to select girls for training and help sustain their work.
  • GGM partners with journalists, filmmakers and new media mavericks to provide mentorship.
  • GGM has local and global impact: through our GGMN.TV network, YouTube Channel and website, our projects reach and connect young women all over the world,encouraging them to become active citizens and participants in media through social media, news bureaus, web portals, media feeds and other unique opportunities, such as producing content at international gatherings and conventions.
