My daughter joined Bigger Picture last year. I love how the organization reinforces positive behavior and creates connections among young women. My daughter enjoyed the community service projects and the trip to New York. I believe Bigger Picture has contributed to my daughter's confidence and independence.
I am a journalist and have dealt with many groups like this over the years. I was impressed by the professionalism and amount of care and effort this organization gives. It is impressive to see that young women will have an outlet like this to improve themselves and grow into productive citizens.
A Bigger Picture, Inc is a non-profit organization providing developmental and mentorship programs to young girls in the Washington, D.C. area. I was very impressed with all of the wonderful opportunities offered to young girls such as workshops, leadership and self-esteem building, enrichment activities and programs to give back to the community. You couldn’t ask for a better organization that exemplifies empowering our young girls to love themselves while transitioning into confident successful young professionals.
A Bigger picture is an awesome program geared towards young girls in the DC area giving them much needed awareness on real life things that can't be taught in a classroom. I love the aspect of giving back to the community that they incorporate in their lessons. Would definitely reccomend this program to people with daughters
