Zofia Kierner

Founder

My name is Zofia Kierner, and I have been a social activist since I was 8 years old.

I am a global citizen (born in Poland, lived in a couple of places around the world, currently in the US).

Like most of you, I am full of dreams, passions and goals. And although many doors have been closed to me with the excuse that I am too young, and not experienced enough, I believe that we, young women can make a difference! It is our voice, that can make a true impact! 

That’s why, at the age of 16, I decided to create Girls Future Ready Foundation. Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. I hope you will join me, my team, our community so we can grow together!

#TOGETHERFORTEACHERS

An opportunity to develop English skills by bringing a native English speaker into your classroom!

Using our resources, amazing mentors, and students from the US we created the program #togetherforteachers to help teachers and students in Poland with online English classes! Native speakers from the US will connect with the class during its online learning to enhance teaching, share culture, run conversations.
