Girls Count, a national initiative based in Denver, has developed and
conducted statewide Title IX assessment projects in Colorado and Illinois.
These projects involve partnerships with state-based organizations (such as
local branches of The American Association of University Women or Girl
Scouts or local community based organizations) and include several phases of
assessment, reporting, training and post-assessment. The assessments
projects are customized, require financial support, volunteer participation
and institutional commitment from the participating communities. Results
have been exciting! Girls Count has a positive, solution oriented approach
to Title IX assessment.
