Where do I begin? How do I get this thing in fifth gear? Happy New Year, Happy 2018 and Happy #GO2018! Whatever we’ve dreamed of doing, 2018 is the year to do it. I mean really GO for it! Just try it. Plan it. Tell someone about it. Sew into it. Ask someone else to sew into. Start a page about it. Just GO for it! Will it work? We’ll never know until you do it. Release it. GO BIG. Don’t go home. Stay out there. Stay ready. Just GO FOR IT! That’s our attitude ’round here at GIRLGO and our team is pumped for an amazing year of possibilities, connections and travel. Catch our enthusiasm and GO FOR IT with us! The more the merrier!


I’m Victoria, founder of GIRLGO, and I’m so excited to bring GIRLGO and our travel programs to girls across America. I’m equally excited to announce our inaugural trip to Italy, this year, June 5-21. We’re looking to take girls 14-17 on this trip and we have space for ten. This is two weeks of cultural immersion, walking, strolling, eating, learning and enjoying Rome in the middle of summer. Seeing the architectural marvels, and the eating delicious gelato and pastas. Not only will we enjoy 2-weeks of all things Italy, we’ll get to learn and build upon our skills! Girls who join us can take the Entrepreneur Track or the STEM Track, two amazing introductory courses where you can learn on the go. Quick bits:

The trip is 05-21 June, 2018

  • We’re taking girls 14-17 in age. Some exceptions may apply for 13 and 18 year participants
  • The trip costs $2300 — but apply by February 8 and receive an instant $300 credit!

From our social chats thus far, parents and followers have lots of questions. Let’s see if I can answer them here.

Otherwise, we’ve been getting lots of positive response, and that’s always encouraging.

In the following posts, I will share more of my story, introduce the GIRLGO team, talk about money and travel, safety, our destinations, our ahhh-mazing team, our sponsors and partners, our global impact project in Africa, what’s in store for 2019 and so much more!

I’d like to thank everyone who has been part of my journey as an individual, this journey as an organization and those of you who are new to the family. We’re here to provide girls with Experience. Exposure. EARLY. Paying it forward and empowering them to change the world.

Say it with me: #GO2018!
