Girls in the Game is a top notch provider of youth services to girls in the Chicagoland area. They bring sports, fitness, health, nutrition and leadership opportunities through after school and summer camp programs to underserved girls who otherwise would never have these opportunities.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Girls who participate in the programs say to me that they would just watch TV after school, but now they love to play soccer, softball and basketball. Parents say their child used to be so quiet, but now they are confident and not afraid to speak up!

As an advisory board member, I have had the opportunity to interact with the awesome girls that participate in this program, its amazing staff and the wonderful volunteers that take time out of their schedules to play a small part in making a huge difference in the lives of the participants. The positive impact sports and athletics can have on building the self-esteem of girls can been seen with all taking part in the activities. Not only are the girls stronger physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Girls in the Game encourages in the girls in the classroom as well and to be the best in all aspects of their lives. The staff helps the girls find their gifts and build on them. I am proud to say I support Girls in the Game.

Girls in the Game brings much needed physical activity and self-esteem development to the areas where girls need it most. As a former teacher, I watched my third graders struggle to make good choices when it came to food as well as interacting with one another. Girls in the Game teaches girls what it means to be healthy and to be a leader, both on and off the field. In my time at Girls in the Game I saw many girls transition into wonderful young women, driven by what they had learned in the programs.

It is amazing to see the impact Girls in the Game has on the lives of school age girls. The program's focus on sports, health, leadership and life is making a difference for over 2,500 girls in the Chicago area. These young ladies learn so many valuable skills including athleticism, leadership, and teamwork. Additionally, they learn how to choose healthy lifestyles including nutrition and health education. Finally, they build confidence in themselves and establish a positive self-image through their interactions with coaches and fellow participants. Girls in the Game is the only organization in Chicago that focuses specifically on girls, providing sports opportunities usually reserved for boys. We need to support the efforts of Girls in the Game to impact the lives of more girls across the broader Chicago area.

My experience is that GIG is an extremely effective organization that provides a critical foundation for young women and their self esteem. The building blocks are based on sports, nutrition, health and life -- and those elements are essential to empowering women to be successful mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially.
