My daughter joined Bigger Picture last year. I love how the organization reinforces positive behavior and creates connections among young women. My daughter enjoyed the community service projects and the trip to New York. I believe Bigger Picture has contributed to my daughter's confidence and independence.

A Bigger Picture Organization helps inner city girls in Washington DC built confidence, character, and provides them with exposure to the arts and the world. It is a great way for young girls to build confidence and become strong women.

A Bigger Picture does a wonderful service to the community. It gives urban girls in the DC community the chance to learn about things that they not only wouldn't get to experience, but wouldn't even be exposed to. From community service to visiting museums and meeting highly successfully professional women, A Bigger Picture gives the girls an opportunity to see the heights to what they can achieve.

I first heard about A Bigger Picture when Chanel reached out to me as I was looking an internship in September. I immediately became interested in the organization and everything they do. Although I've only been with the organization for a short amount of time, I've definitely enjoyed it, especially getting to meet and work with the girls involved. I am so happy I had the opportunity to be a part of A Bigger Picture and look forward to seeing how the girls are able to grow over the next few months.

I have been looking for a great organization where I could give back to young girls in the community. My first Saturday volunteering was so much fun working with the young girls. A Bigger Picture Is an amazing organization!

I first heard about A Bigger Picture through a locat radio station. After hearing some of the great things they did with mentoring teens and within the community, I decided to inquire further and met Ms. Chanel Evan. Needless to say, I am glad to be a part of the volunteer team. I love the fact that the organization reaches out to girls and expose them to different areas that they will at some point encounter in their lives such as: building self confidence/self worth, leadership, financial management, preparing for the future albeit college and/or selected career choices, travel, community service and a multitude of other things. The teens and the staff are awesome to work with. I love my time spent with them and although I am a volunteer, I am there learning from them as well.

A Bigger Picture is an organization I stumbled across on volunteer match and I am blown away! I've been with this org for two years and it is an absolute pleasure! Chanel and her staff are extremely organized,professional and one hundred percent dedicated to the mission. I admire that even as the founder, Chanel is still at every workshop, community service event, exposure trip, meeting etc.! That encourages me to continue, seeing how hands on and driven she is. The workshop topics are always educational and fun. I love how the topics encourage the young ladies to become well-rounded individuals. All in all, this is an awesome org with a bright future!
