LEAP SELF-DEFENSE INC
June 2, 2010
I joined Girls' LEAP over 2 years ago. When I first joined it was because I wanted to serve on a Board and wanted to be a part of an organization that provided direct service to youth. It was a simple reason to join and now as I look back so shortsighted. LEAP isn't just a place that provides direct services to young girls it is a place that teaches girls to have a voice and to feel empowered. Now as I am more engaged in the organization and the mission, LEAP has allowed me to reflect on my youth and on what I want for my new baby girl. LEAP does just that - it creates a community of young girls and women that allows each of us to develop as individuals while feeling a part of something greater.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
multiple events where young girls and women have come and represented the organization in such a mature and powerful manner.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
