GIRLGO is a travel sorority that organizes life-changing international experiences for girls 14 and up. Travel Experience. Global Exposure. Early

Welcome to GIRLGO! I am Victoria Lynn Childress, founder and director and I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to learn more about us! Our organization is unique in that we handcraft itineraries uniquely for American teenage girls, exposing them to both culture and education opportunities abroad. 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 because they were equipped and informed, early, to do so.

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!!!

Before the Summer 2018 trip commenced, we conducted a survey and only two girls were seriously interested in studying abroad for at least one semester post-high school. At the end of their two-week experience in Italy, all 10 teenage girl participants said they would heavily consider study abroad options for at least one semester!

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, we understand. 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!

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 team member are 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 is a unique portal designed just for parent and gaurdians to securely connect with their daughter’s trip, 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 of a lifetime.

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.)
