Using improv to strengthen girls’ leadership skills, our Funny Girls program is boosting and bolstering the power and potential of girls and maximizing their moxie!
For 20 years (we don’t feel that old), The Harnisch Foundation has been investing in the leadership of so many stellar women. Each woman’s path is different. Yet, so many women wished they’d developed their leadership skills earlier in life. After hearing this SO many times, we decided to do something about it. We developed a girls’ leadership curriculum, and being who we are, we added a creative twist: improv.
Our interest in improv as a teaching methodology started in 2013.After conversations with a multitude of girl leadership experts and improv instructors, corroborated by research from Harvard, we knew the time was ripe for a formal leadership-taught-through-improv curriculum aimed to help tween girls develop as leaders.
