Council for the Advancement of Girls
The Council is a student led organization that serves as the liason between the Center for the Advancement of Girls and the student body. Its main purpose is to promote the work of the Center and to empower girls at Agnes Irwin and beyond through their own initiatives. The group meets bi-weekly to discuss issues women and girls face and to create solutions to these challenges.
One of the largest undertakings, is the organization and planning of the Council's annual Leading for Change (L4C) conference. This event is a call to high school girls interested in leadership, who are passionate about making change in their own communities. The conference features speakers and workshop facilitators, who share their leadership experience, knowledge and skill set with participants through dynamic presentations.
L4C also serves as a platform to prompt another one of the Council's focused initiatives: Girls CAN (Councils for Advancement Network). Girls CAN is an extension of the Council through a chapter system in other schools.
The Council also facilitates a Girls Scout Troop meeting each year as another way to display leadership and to connect with the budding Lower School leaders.
