GirlUp GVL is a free after school and summer program devoted to serving middle and high school girls in Greenville, SC. We seek to enrich and empower young women with positive formative experiences for life.
How We Do It
The middle school program consists of daily activities such as:
- after school pick up
- physical fitness
- group discussion
- personal reflection time
The middle school program takes place Monday through Thursday 3:15 pm – 6:00 pm throughout the school year and follows the Greenville County School calendar.
The high school program exists as a continuation in the investment of our former middle school participants.
The high school program assists with skills and practical needs regarding academics, college and job readiness, overall life skills and provides mentorship.
Our high school girls’ group meets weekly for enrichment classes during the fall and spring semesters. Additional activities and tutoring sessions are planned around each individual’s work and school sports schedules.
Special activities for both programs consist of:
- exploring job opportunities through local employers
- attending extracurricular camps
- field trips (ranging from college visits to swimming)
