什么是 Girl Up 青年顾问？
The Teen Advisor program exemplifies Girl Up’s core value of being girl-led and girl-driven. Composed of a widely diverse group of teenage girls, Teen Advisors are passionate changemakers who together spread and fuel Girl Up’s work. Teen Advisors are central to all Girl Up decision-making by advising on strategy and serve as leading voices for our work to advance global gender equality. 为了帮助青年顾问完成任务，Girl Up 向她们提供了技能培训、职业发展机会、实践性学习，还帮助她们与工作人员的建立人际关系。
Since the first Teen Advisor class began in 2010, more than 136 girls have developed their leadership skills through this global program. Collectively, Girl Up Teen Advisors have raised more than $500,000, completed more than 7,000 hours of service, hosted hundreds of events in their communities around the world and performed more than 500 advocacy actions at local, national, and global levels.
