BROTHER DAVID DARST CENTER FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE SPIRITUALITY AND
November 2, 2012

The Br. David Darst Center is a really unique organization. They focus on education helping young people "see it differently". Through their retreats, they explore social justice issues like racism, inequality, homelessness, etc. - but in a way that encourages people to recognize our collective shared humanity. After a weekend of volunteering at local organizations and lots of reflection and discussion, they encourage people to take what they've learned back to their communities and impact change there. Not only do you have the opportunity to learn more about the world around you, but their programs help you learn more about yourself.

GIRLS IN THE GAME NFP
November 2, 2012

Girls in the Game is an incredible organization with a mission that truly changes lives. In an era when women's and girls' issues are sadly not at the forefront, Girls in the Game is making sure that girls' needs are heard, and that girls have opportunities to develop into strong leaders. With a unique mission that targets the whole girl (mind, body, leadership, life), Girls in the Game helps girls develop their voice, build their self-esteem, and develop lifelong healthy habits. As a former employee, I saw the impact of GIG's programs on a daily basis, and had the opportunity to see the dramatic change in confidence of the girls involved over several years. Additionally, I was impacted by the mission as well! Similar to how we worked with program participants, staff are also encouraged to be strong leaders and are given opportunities to professionally develop.
