Review for Girls Incorporated Of The Washington Dc Metropolitan Area, Washington, DC, USA
What better way to inspire the young girls of the Washington, DC Metropolitan area to be strong, smart and bold! As a DC native, I was looking for a way to personally give back through volunteer service, financial donations and sharing any of my skill sets that I have gained through my career. I made this interest known to a colleague at my job who introduced me to Girls, Inc.
I was immediately impressed by the dedication of the staff and Board. The number of programs and experiences offered to the girls is amazing. For example, the recent summer camps at the facility located on the campus of Howard University included The Cyber Ninja Girls Camp and the Space Aviation Camp. These camps included STEM focused programming as well as field trips, meals and snacks for free or at a nominal rate for each girl. During the year the girls have participated in trips to the White House and focused on improving their financial literacy through programs that allow them to gain a better understanding of savings and investing through actual hands-on participation.
My hope is that others take a look at the great things that Girls Inc. is doing to impact the lives of these girls!
