want to change how the organziation is perceived, and tell every one about the value of the program for girls, families and communities as a whole.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide programs and experiences for every girl everywhere- books, events, outdoor summer programs, and healthy living in the environment, it could retrofit all facilities to be more energy efficient and conservation focused, through and through.
Ways to make it better...
My experience has been inspiring, as I watch the next generation take action to preserve their living space, this planet.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Awareness of he benefits of the program and additional funding to meet the needs of those who could otherwise not participate.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I am delighted to recommend this organization to the green Choice Award, and I want to thank all the 3,500 volunteers who join in the work of being change makers.
