Girls on BeachGirls everywhere: show us the difference you make in the world! We at the Coalition for Adolescent Girls and Together for Girls want you to show the world your talents, skills, and contribution to your community. Now is a time when many governments and organizations are looking to girls for help in crafting solutions to the world’s biggest problems, and we want them to see all you have to offer.

How do you support your community? What’s your greatest talent or skill? Maybe you’re the captain of your soccer team. Perhaps you’re a talented photographer or musician or you’ve helped start a new club or initiative in your community. Whatever it is, we want to see how you’re using your knowledge, skills, and creativity to make the world a better, more beautiful place!

“______ is my passion and it is how I make a difference.”

Just make sure to use the hashtag #GirlsEngage or mention @CAG_org so we can find your message.

This Day of Action also kicks off an amazing art contest. The theme is, “Girls Shape the World” and you can participate by sharing visual artwork, such as photos, paintings, poetry, or drawings that illustrate how you use your energy, talents, and creativity to improve your world. We will be accepting submissions until January 8, 2016 from girls around the world. Click here to learn more.
So join in and tell us how you use your unique and valuable talents and initiative to help build a better world for all girls!
