Impact Austin
May 25, 2010

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.

The Great!

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.

Running Start
September 2, 2009

Running Start is an amazing organization that provides amazing opportunities for young women! I was a participant in their political leadership program in DC, and the experience has truly changed my way of thinking. The organization provided us with amazing speakers and experiences that included subjects not only of political interest, but also relating to humanitarian work, career-building, and networking. As a young woman, I am proud to say that I support Running Start.

Awesome! There were so many kinds of people working on the staff, but each had the goal of empowering young women for the future. It was great to be surrounded by such an ambitious, caring, and persevering group of mentors!

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

change the lives of SO many girls! The feelings generated during this political retreat are irreplaceable. I am still inspired by the 50 girls that I met, and what each of them will be able to do with their life.
