Mission Statement

Our mission is to use the performing arts to equip African-American girls with skills that nurture their individual growth and inspire them to use their talents for positive change in their communities and throughout the world.

Description

Global Girls Inc. was incorporated in 2000 and has established itself as an engaging and often cutting-edge youth performing arts/arts education organization on the south side of Chicago. We provide a safe space where girls ages 4-18 learn communication, presentation and performance skills. Over 2,000 youth participate annually in community and school based programs. During the weekly sessions, girls and a few boys learn skills to investigate their world and then turn their findings into performance pieces. The result is socially conscious, youth driven theatre that gives voice to girls’ issues and concerns.

I worked at Powell School. We had a chapter and I was impressed with positive attitudes our girls developed by being a part of Global Girls Inc. I met Ryon Gloster, a Global Girls member, on CTA Bus today and had a delightful conversation with her regarding Global Girls' trip to Africa and other activities. I felt as if I had met Mrs. Michelle Obama.
