The Girls Advisory Board (GAB) is a program for girls in Maine who will be in 9th-12th grade in the 2018-2019 school year. The board helps Hardy Girls make important decisions about direction and programming, runs workshops and gives presentations at the annual Girls Rock! Conferences, and is a safe and supportive environment for members to discuss topics relevant to them. GAB is a great opportunity for girls to practice their leadership, engage in social action projects, and keep the organization current on challenges facing girls today. Check out the current members of the Girls Advisory Board.
We are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Girls Advisory Board. This program is FREE to participate in. To apply, click here. Meetings are about once a month on Sundays from September through June. This year, we are trying something different! Our hope is to have TWO regional GABs – one for based out of Lewiston and Portland AND one based out of Waterville and Bangor. So, girls from statewide are encouraged to apply. Carpooling help is available for members to get from one or the other location. Applications will be accepted through June and interviews will be held in July.
