Reviews for Hardy Girls Healthy Women Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Hardy Girls Healthy Women since I was a junior at Colby College in 2005. Over the years, I have been able to facilitate girls groups at a local middle school, run two hockey clinics on Colby's Johnson Pond, be a facilitator at Girls ROCK! weekend, and more! I love being part of a group of committed leaders who want the best for girls and women. I enjoy watching the excellent programming that HGHW provides to their surrounding community. The mission of HGHW is to strengthen girls' self confidence, give them a critical eye towards the media, and expose them to careers and activities they might not have considered for themselves. I have seen girls look at me wide-eyed and say, "WOW! I didn't know I could do THAT!" I fully support all that HGHW is doing and will help them continue to thrive!
