Review for Girls Write Now, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Girls Write Now defines the idea of a "great nonprofit." Little did I know when I joined in 2006 that I would find my life changed as much as the girls I had hoped to help. I have volunteered in every capacity with this organization, and can personally attest that the staff and volunteers of this organization are the hardest working, most brilliant women I have had the honor to meet. The girls -- well, they're strength, talent, and honesty takes my breath away. I have found the experience of working as part of Girls Write Now continually inspirational in both my professional and personal lives. Through this organization, I have found the strength and confidence to be a better writer, a better teacher, and a better friend.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my years as a mentor, Program Advisory Commitee member, board member, and Advisory Board member.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Feeling a part of a community: A real-life, vibrant community in every sense of the word.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

TREMENDOUS!! Dedicated, hard-working, and largely sleep deprived. I've never met a group of more inspiring individuals

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

Open centers in all boroughs to serve the hundreds of girls who need help; then build centers in several US cities, to spread the mission, and the positive work of Girls Write Now.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
