[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This summer, Girl World will employ 15 young women ages 14-18 in a six week long project addressing street harassment and gender-specific violence. Girl World will act as a hub of resources and action for the current “Courage Campaign”, a campaign that works to address and eliminate the occurrences of sexual harassment on public transportation. Participants will gather research around the issue of harassment through the use of interviews, surveys, and analyzing current campaigns/policies. Participants will be responsible for the presentation of research and findings to campaign members and community members throughout the six week session; as well as produce materials such as posters, videos, and online content to engage community members and peers in a broader conversation regarding harassment.

Furthermore, participants will engage 20 local businesses, organizations, and elected officials to ask for their support in displaying materials.

Upon completion of summer session, participants will host a community forum/event allowing for the display and further spread of their work. Additional focus will be given to job development and conflict resolution skills.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
