The objectives of Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) are to increase young Bulgarian women’s civic engagement; to foster self-esteem, leadership skills, communication skills, goal-setting and decision-making abilities; and to increase participants’ awareness about current issues such as drug abuse, sexual health, eating disorders, Internet privacy, and the dangers of human trafficking.
Camp GLOW 2011 is a collaboration between GLOW NGO and its active national network of volunteers, the European Information Center and a seven-member planning committee that allows young female Bulgarian leaders to gain practical leadership experience. Camp GLOW itself is a seven-day experience that is aimed at helping young Bulgarian girls reach and explore their potential as future leaders. The Camp supports their development by engaging them in topics including identity, teamwork, self-esteem, decision-making, civic responsibility, European citizenship, and business skills in ways that allow the young women to form their own knowledge. The Camp, run completely in English, utilizes a wide array of interactive means such as activities, games, simulations, discussion groups, workshops, a community service day and guest speakers to stimulate the girls into action.
