At the beginning of a new year, we often find ourselves re-evaluating our day-to-day and seek out ways to do better, be better and become more involved in our community. Every year, around this time, G(irls)20 receives countless emails, tweets and messages asking how to get involved with our organization.

Coincidence? I think not.

If you are interested in joining the G(irls)20 community to help cultivate this generation of young female leaders, then check out the top 3 ways you can get involved with us below.

1. Apply

Apply to be a Delegate at the 9th annual G(irls)20 Summit if you’re a young woman between the ages of 18-23 who lives in one of the G20 countries, the European and African Union or the MENA Region.

This year, the G(irls)20 Summit will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in advance of the G20 Summit.

Every year, the G(irls)20 delegates convene prior to the G20 Summit for a week of leadership training, social initiative development and mentoring by established leaders in the business and public sectors. After a week of intensive skills training workshops and panel discussions, delegates draft their own Communiqué with an emphasis on the specific economic and social issues facing girls and women in their countries.
