Welcome to the Girl Shine online training!

The International Rescue Committee is delighted to present Girl Shine - a program model and resource package that seeks to support, protect, and empower adolescent girls in humanitarian settings. Girl Shine has been designed to help contribute to the improved prevention of and response to violence against adolescent girls in humanitarian settings, by providing them with skills and knowledge to identify types of GBV and seek support services if they experience or are at risk of GBV. Additionally, Girl Shine aims to build the social assets of girls to ensure they have someone they can turn to if they experience or are threatened by GBV. Girl Shine supports adolescent girls as they navigate a safe and healthy transition into adulthood, protected from GBV, supported by their caregivers and peers and able to claim their full rights. Girl Shine provides adolescent girls with life skills that strengthen their social and emotional learning and information on adolescent sexual and reproductive health, critical to making healthy decisions.

The Girl Shine training consists of four modules and can be completed at your own pace.

Is this course for me?

The training has been designed for GBV practitioners who intend to set up Girl Shine in their area of operation or are already implementing Girl Shine, but want to refresh their knowledge on the Girl Shine program model and resource package.  It includes quizzes, videos and other interactive elements.  This training does not replace the full Girl Shine training package which must be completed before implementing the Girl Shine curriculum.
