Girls in the Game is an incredible organization with a mission that truly changes lives. In an era when women's and girls' issues are sadly not at the forefront, Girls in the Game is making sure that girls' needs are heard, and that girls have opportunities to develop into strong leaders. With a unique mission that targets the whole girl (mind, body, leadership, life), Girls in the Game helps girls develop their voice, build their self-esteem, and develop lifelong healthy habits. As a former employee, I saw the impact of GIG's programs on a daily basis, and had the opportunity to see the dramatic change in confidence of the girls involved over several years. Additionally, I was impacted by the mission as well! Similar to how we worked with program participants, staff are also encouraged to be strong leaders and are given opportunities to professionally develop.

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 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.
