The voice of girls in our society is nearly absent”, a 16 year old GRL Power researcher describes. GRL Power project, funded through a YouthPower Learning grant, aims to shift the current paradigm by being one of the first of its kind in Jordan and in the region to implement girl-led research. Unlike traditional empowerment programs, girl-led research emboldens girls by providing them with the opportunity to practice leadership within their community. Implemented in three different areas in Jordan, GRL Power researchers explored the topic of safety among adolescent girls in their areas. Hear what the girl researchers have learned. How did this experience go? What did we learn? What were the findings of the research?

The goal of this webinar is to share GRL Power learning and the findings of research conducted by the girls. The three main takeaways of the webinar will be: 1) the story of GRL Power 2) the girl researchers' research findings 3) lessons learned from implementing girl-led research in Jordan.
