Choose Yourself, we envision the growth of Girl Talk in every country, city, and town. We believe the conversations had in Girl Talks are necessary for every community and are determined to deliver this empowerment, sisterhood, and solidarity to all young women and girls across the globe.
Girl Talk Ambassadors are young girls and anyone who identifies as a woman, interested in being a part of Girl Talk and making this vision of bringing these conversations to their closest community. Girl Talk Ambassadors are located in every community and work to develop conversations they believe to be beneficial for the communities they live in, identify potential sponsors, and organize Girl Talk in their communities. Ambassadors are the heart of Girl Talk because they are located in the communities. They are able to have these conversations with other young women and girls on a daily. Ambassadors get mentorship and training from the director of the Girl Talk program and work closely with her as they organize Girl Talks.
