A word from our founder

Hi, my name is Zofia Kierner

We, young people, are the leaders of the future and we need to develop the skills that will be necessary to be future CEOs, politicians, professors, executives and more. If this is your dream, we have built this foundation for you! Join us to become #futureready!

Don't just take our word for it
I genuinely think that Girls Future Ready is one of the most amazing groups of people I have ever met. Those inspiring individuals can surprise me every time we see each other. That’s why I want to stay.
Aleksandra Tracichleb
Laureate of HerStory with Irma
Girls Future Ready makes a girl from Poland truly believe that she can run the world and it is the ONLY organisation in Poland that does so with such passion and efficacy.
Dominika Wilczok
Laureate of HerStory with Antonina Majchrzak
Since I've been with GFR, I've had so many opportunities for development that it's like a universe! Ever since I've been with you, I've been living my dream life, and it's absolutely incredible!

Zofia is a very passionate young lady who knows that she has power in her hands and she uses it to change the world for the better.
Karolina Tulik
Laureate of HerStory Project with Ismena Dabrowska
Thanks to Girls Future Ready I opened my dream business after I won HerStory program and that changed a lot in my life. There are no organizations in Poland that support your female development in the way that GFR does.
Julia Polaczek
Laureate of HerStory project with Ande Lyons
GFR shows hidden dreams of people like me. If it weren't for Girls Future Ready, I would probably never start my own podcast or gain a belief in myself and my abilities.
Julia Kobielska
Laureate of HerStory project with Halo, Dziewczyny
The #togetherforteachers program has had an immense impact on my students. Some of my students for the first time in their lives had the opportunity to speak English with kids from the United States and what's more, it was the perfect way to improve their speaking skills.
Małgorzata Konopczyńska
English Teacher at XXI liceum, Glogow, Poland
'For me, Girls Global Ready program broadened my horizons, allowed me to overcome the fear of talking, and most importantly - allowed me to develop or even discover new skills, both interperonal and creative.'
Zuzanna from Poland
Mentee, GGR 2022
Without Girls Future Ready community, I wouldn't be where I am now
