This organization gave a grant to Girls Empowerment Network of Austin (GENaustin), which I was employed by this year by this year as a high school clubGEN Leader. The amount given by Impact Austin has allowed GENaustin to reach out to so many at-risk middle school girls to allow them to have support and mentoring in a safe setting. My job has changed my life as I enter college - I desire to work for women's empowerment in the future, and study Women's Issues. At a conference, I met the founder of this company and made sure to tell her of the impact her grant had made on my life.

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

my day to day life, as it allows for my salary from GENaustin as well as many operations of clubGEN (a club for middle schoolers) within GENaustin.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazingly empowered women.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of so many people with the grants it gives.
