Julia Lynch

Founding Director, Global Girl Project


Over the past twenty years Julia has worked in Canada, England, and the United States as a Community Development Worker, Therapist, Events Coordinator and Executive Director. The common thread joining all of these aforementioned endeavours is her ongoing commitment to social justice and community development work with various non-profits and communities around the world.

In 2013 Julia founded Global Girl Project, an international nonprofit that mobilizes young women around the world to create and facilitate social change through community development. Julia started Global Girl Project because she recognised an enormous gap in the access to leadership training opportunities for young women who live in extreme poverty, within developing countries. Julia’s other hat is as a Capoeira Instructor, teaching the transformational Afro-Brazilian martial art in her own academy in London.
