IATG Local Chapters are girls inspiring girls to be exactly who they are and share what's on our brilliant hearts and beautyFULL minds. Chapters meet on a regular basis to have conversations that matter. They are giving girls a safe space to talk about ALL things - confidence, relationships, fears, struggles, beauty, and so much more - TOGETHER to know we are not alone.
This community is about celebrating, supporting, and loving each other - and learning how to do all those things for ourselves. Starting a chapter on my campus changed my life, and these girls became my family. It's pure magic, and I want YOU to be a part of it! So what do you say, are you in?
5 Steps to Starting a Chapter:
(P.S. We walk you through every step of the way even after you launch!)
Applying is suuuuuper easy. We see it as an opportunity for you to reflect on your personal story and for us to get to know you better; it’s fun for everyone! Want to have a friend join you for the ride? Go for it - We love seeing girls lead chapters together!
Once you apply, we’ll reach out to schedule an interview. Expect it to be a fun and meaningful conversation with one of our team members, who will become your mentor throughout the launching process. Yay for new friends!
3. START TRAINING
Interview... check! Now time to dive into leader training. But have no fear!
We give you all the tools and resources you need to become a chapter leader.
Including our IATG Formula to creating a safe space, a full conversation curriculum, and more. Plus our team is here for you always. We’ve got your back, girl!
4. LAUNCH PREP
Start planning with your mentor for all the details during your upcoming chapter launch meeting! WOOHOO! *Cue happy dance*
5. CHAPTER LAUNCH!
OMG it’s your first chapter meeting! Got butterflies in your tummy? No worries... A member of our team will always Skype into your launch meeting to support you. Then from there, we let you take the reigns as we cheer you on. We are all in this together!
It's a powerful thing when girls unite, let their guards down and speak their truth. Every day our IATG members are turning self-doubt into self-love, competition into collaboration, and are shifting girl culture around the world with their voices and their hearts.
