WHAT kinds of reports are there?

In your Club’s group page, select the 'Reports' tab to share important important information back to Girl Up. On the right side you will see three options:
  • Kick-off Strategy: This report helps you set your top three goals for the year, let us know who are your club leaders and how many Club members, and provide your adult adviser's name and email, if your Club has one.
WHEN TO SUBMIT: At the beginning of the school-year, or whenever you start your Club. 
  • Progress Report: Progress reports are a great way to check-in with your goals, membership numbers, and how your club is doing overall.
WHEN TO SUBMIT: At the end of the first term of the school year (or halfway through the year) and another one at the end of the school year.
  • Activity Report: This type of report is for any Club activity, from Club meetings, advocacy activities, events or community outreach. Select the correct 'Activity Type' so you can earn points for the type of activity your club completed. Be sure to attach a picture if you can, and you might just get a shout out on Girl Up's social media!
WHEN TO SUBMIT: After any Club activity.

WHY should I submit activity reports?

  • Goal-setting and accountability are skills you use in school, university, and in any career. These skills help you plan successful activities, from meetings to bake sales to guest speaker events, and are crucial in building a sustainable Club. Girl leaders have said this part of reports makes them feel accomplished and confident.
  • Be an active Club in good standing with Girl Up by regularly submitting reports. If you don't report back to us, then we can't know what you've accomplished! If you have not submitted a report in a while, or feel that you haven’t done that many activities, do not worry. Girl Up wants to support your Club and hear from you. 
  • Earn points and prizes! Yes, you'll earn points for each report you submit - and those points can lead to prizes at the end of the school year or onstage recognition at the Girl Up Leadership Summit. Learn more about points here
  • Get a shout-out on Girl Up's social media, monthly newsletter, or weekly Club of the week in Girl Up News! Yes, we see you and all of your hard work. To give you the recognition you're due, you have to tell us about all your amazing work.
