Reviews for Hardy Girls Healthy Women Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Hardy Girls Healthy Women is more than an organization for girls. It's an organization for everyone who not only believes that we can have healthier relationships and stronger kids, but that we can help kids be stronger by giving them a sense of power and allowing them to hold the reins. I've talked to so many girls who feel less alone because of Hardy Girls, who know it's okay to be brave and nothing less than necessary to remain true to who they are. Engagement - and I suppose, ultimately, that's what I love most about Hardy Girls Healthy Women is their ability to engage girls in the world and with each other - is so key for young women - and HGHW puts engaging with the world on so many levels within reach of girls in Maine - and increasingly - girls everywhere. It's an extraordinary feat.

I have been involved with Hardy Girls Healthy Women since its creation. As an attorney, I have referred many clients to their programs. Hardy Girls work with girls, through their Girls Coalition Groups, the Adventure Girls programs and the Girls Advisory Board, promote girls learning first hand how important their thoughts and voices can be - creating critical thinkers and social activists. I have actively worked for 11 years helping HGHW obtain donations in the community and have donated as well especially for their Girls Rock awards and weekend. Their approach for working with girls is unique and powerful.
