I have been a member of the Advisory Board since January of 2012. In that time, I have really come to respect and appreciate the work that GITG does with the girls at Chicago Public Schools around the city. My team from work had a day where we all volunteered at the summer camp back in July 2012, and we had a really great time getting to know the girls. It was a very organized event, and everyone on my team had a very positive experience. The girls really seem to appreciate the services they receive from this organization and have fun learining how to be good teammates!

I love Girls in the Game! I'm a member of the Advisory Board, and in addition to working with great people who care about the community, everything we do and all the money we raise goes directly to helping girls in need!

Girls in the game is a fantastic program that has demonstrated how a sustainable program can acheive a positive impact among underserved girls. Sports participation is a unique opportunity to provide physical activity as well as the development of other social skills that not only contribute to overall health, but improve the social development of the child. With the growing disparity of weight status among youth, Girls in the Game has recognized the need for evidence based programming and has displayed the impact of prioritizing the health of our young people among underserved communities.

I have been volunteering with Girls in the Game for the past four years, helping to plan events for fund-raising as well as spreading the word about the amazing work that the organization does. Girls in the Game really makes a difference in young girls lives at a time when they are most vulnerable to poor influences. Using sports and fitness as a way to teach about leadership, teamwork, health, self-esteem and life has worked for girls in all walks of life and it's great to have an organization that focuses on bringing those experiences to girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity.

I have seen the results as measured by independent research organizations and they are not surprising. Girls in the Game provides vast improvements for its participants both in health and education measures and sets the girls up to succeed.

It's all about the girls! I was one of the very first staff members of Girls in the Game when it started. It's been an amazing experience witnessing the growth of this organization, its programs and its services that reach so many deserving girls. the commitment, knowledge and passion of the executive director, the staff, the board as well as all of the volunteers, supporters and sponsors is incredible and contagious. Given the need for growing girls' nutritional awareness and providing girls the tools and programs that enable confidence building and high self-esteem, Girls in the Game is one of the most unique girl-serving non profits in the country.

I have worked with this organization on many different kinds of events. The executive director and her team are amazing,they give 100% to the girls. They are able to express the importance of their mission and engage amazing women to support it. I have worked with their board who gives of their time, treasure and talent and I have worked with the girls who are bright, happy, excited and engaged. They learn about and come to understand the importance of physical health, emotial health, good food and also the importance of the choices they make. They are exposed to a variety of leadership opportunities that empower them to choose for themselves the kind of leaders they want to become. Through mentors they see possibilities for themselves that they may not have imagined. This organization is one of my favorites as they get it, they beleive in their mission and are tireless in finding new and better ways to empower girls. I am proud to be associcated with them.

There is no other rounded program for gilrs- like Girls in the Game! It is a changing experince for partipants, parents, and staff. The evidence based learning speaks for itself including: • Significant correlations found between the following variables: 􀂃 Physical appearance, self-esteem, and body satisfaction 􀂃 Global self-esteem and depression 􀂃 Confidence and school self-esteem The girls learn a true lifestyle change and would not be where they are in life without the program.
