Although I am a board member now, I became involved many years ago as a donor. I firmly believe in the mission - to help underserved girls in NYC - for the reasons that: it is only right and fair to give all youth educational opportunity and guidance; that girls can have an important influence on their families and communities if given the education and guidance; and that NYC is my hometown. There is an extremely hard-working and dedicated staff and a board who is dedicated to the mission. GINYC is getting results!

The Great!

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

the success of the girls we help. Specifically, I have met the principals in two of the schools where we have comprehensive programs and we can see the improvement in the girls performance.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

grow larger.

I have had the pleasure of being involved with Girls Inc of NYC for over a year now, and keep being surprised time and time again by the thoughtfulness, creativity and relevance of the programs. The staff, volunteers, educators and the girls themselves all strive to bring to life educational programs that bridge the gap between school and life, and contribute to empowering hundreds of participants each year. Girls learn how to manage a stock portfolio, how to assemble components of a computer, and dozens of other equally useful and unexpected skills, through it all developing their own confidence and believing they can be whoever they want to be. One of the goals of the programs is to accompany the girls on their way to college, but that's really only one step in a lifelong journey.

The Great!

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

Seeing the pride and sense of accomplishment in the eyes of the girls attending the 2010 College Shower.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

1. Travel back in time and have Girls Inc exist when I was growing up... 2. Make sure it gets even more support to help further its mission to inspire young girls to be "strong, smart and bold"!
