My heart and vision is to guide girls into the world, so that they can make moves with an international point of view, impact nations and contribute to this world as a global citizen.

parent’s passport

Calling All Parents & Guardians! We want to connect with you! Allowing your girl to travel to a foreign country is a big decision. Our parents from past trips have a lot of great things to say about GIRLGO. Let us share who we are, how we do this and how your girl can experience a trip of a lifetime!
Parent Testimonial | 5-Stars

My daughter, Kenedi participated in a 18 day educational trip with GirlGo to Italy the summer of 2018. My daughter had a wonderful time. The trip was filled with adventures in three different Italian cities and the Amalfi Coast. She loved her experiences in Florence, Rome, and Pisa. The immersion in food, language and culture were eye opening. My daughter who is a foodie truly embraced all aspects of the Italian diet. She tried tiramisu, gelato, linguine with clams, gnocchi and calamari to name a few of the dishes she was served. The group even did a college tour, a visit to the beach, a wine tasting and a weekend excursion on a private boat off the Amalfi Coast. I am so impressed!!! My younger daughter can’t wait to participate!!!

Safety & Sisterhood
GIRLGO believes in and upholds the highest standards of health and safety when traveling with our minor and adult members. Because we are based in Italy, we have community and a safety net that feels like your home outside of home, so our girls are not only tourists in our town, but welcomed guests. Upon becoming a member, the GoKit will equip the girls, and their parents, with all the safety tips, tools and requirements needed to be prepared before and during the trip. For our 17 and under groups, at least one GIRLGO adult chaperon is assigned, per 5 girls. GIRLGO is a sisterhood and that means we eat together, shop together, work together, learn together… GO together. Our Parent’s Passport helps parent and guardians to connect with us, become familiar with our requirements for travel, how they can feel more ease and help their girl get prepared for an adventure abroad.

We are always developing new programs and partnerships for girls to explore new countries. This year, we are examining how we can create a viable global-impact project for our girls in American, to mentor and work with girls in Africa. 

girl-driven social impact 

The GIRLGO Leadership is gearing up this year for an adventure-packed, culture-rich trip to Africa this year! We are taking the first steps to go and outline a thoughtful, impactful and positive experience with our partners in Africa, for the benefit of our students in 2020 and beyond!  GIRLGO Expeditions, based in global destinations like Africa, are designed to be girl-led social impact experiences. We host camps for language, leadership and skillset training in order to assist with self-development, college, career and community preparation. Our girls who GO on these expeditions are travelers and outstanding students, with strong education and volunteer backgrounds. We cannot wait to share more with you! (This trip is not open for registration. It is a leadership camp only.)
