Excellent program! Inspiring young girls to see more of the world and expand thoughts of what they can do! Dream big and showing these ladies how to become respectable young women who are well rounded! Love the work A BIgger Picture does!
A Bigger Picture Organization helps inner city girls in Washington DC built confidence, character, and provides them with exposure to the arts and the world. It is a great way for young girls to build confidence and become strong women.
Since I have been a part of this organization I have watched the passion, determination and hard-work of its leadership make obvious impacts on the young ladies who were taken into the program. The workshops conducted for the young ladies so far have given them opportunities to experience things they otherwise may have never had the opportunity to do. A Bigger Picture has worked hard to expand the thinking and the outlook of its girls, and has, I believe, succeeded in giving the girls courage to take on life more confidently and intellectually.
Exposure -- it makes a huge difference in the lives of young people. A Bigger Picture serves young women in the Washington DC area by providing a series of workshops, field trips and community service to open the world up to young minds. Girls benefit from growth in self confidence, leadership and life skills. I am proud to be associated with this 501(c)(3) organization and am committed to it's mission.
