Meet our co-host, Girls Athletic Leadership Schools

GALS Inc. is an organization that defines the "how to" of leadership by creating gender-based schools around the country that teach Embodied Education, defined by learning and living with our minds, our hearts, and our bodies. GALS believes that schools are the primary setting for the development and growth of young people today, and that schools are the place where change-makers are created. GALS is committed to preparing a generation of young women to become well-educated and motivated leaders who will contribute instrumentally to society, locally and globally. GALS students represent all facets of the community from the most privileged to the most challenged — what bonds them is sisterhood. 

Thank you, conference sponsors and partners!
