Building a girl-powered future by preparing adolescent girls for the world of work
Launch Girls enables adolescent girls to build
the critical professional and life skills necessary for successful futures. We create customized, girl-centered entrepreneurship programming that helps girls develop critical 21st-century professional skills, plans for their futures, and the confidence needed to succeed in life after school.
We believe that girls can lead, create, and drive change, and we are here to unlock that potential.
Our Girl Boss program was adapted from entrepreneurship classes at the MIT Sloan School of Management. The program is based on research from the World Bank and World Economic Forum that identified critical skills sought after by employers as well as input from girls globally through a 14-country survey of over 500 girls.
The foundation of our programs is our Girl Boss Mindsets and Skills, 10 core entrepreneurial and work-readiness skills, which have been specifically identified to equip adolescent girls to take charge of their futures and successfully transition from school to work.
