Using the leadership model of Eleanor Roosevelt, GLW's nine principles give participants the building blocks to be powerful leaders who bring their passion and leadership potential to life through a series of interactive workshops, field trips to the United Nations in New York City and other significant sites. The nine principles are: Empowerment, Passion & Purpose, Goals, Women & Power, Social Justice, Advocacy & Activism, Leadership, Global Citizenship, Sisterhood and Networking.

The transformative program teaches girls how to use their voice, build confidence, develop a positive self-image, and address issues important to them. " It has given me confidence and opened my mind to different things I can do to make the world a better place…I am leaving GLW with more self confidence and a feeling of self power."
