Review for Girls to Women, East Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the pleasure of working with the Girls to Women staff and students. Both the Executive Director, Pat Foster, and the Program Director, Marquisa Hawkins, share a passion for encouraging, supporting and assisting young girls to grow into strong, independent young women. This organization is gender specific and offers a variety of services to the at risk young ladies of East Palo Alto who face daily adversities. This program not only offers academic, social and community support, but it also provides a safe place to build positive relationships.

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

This program has greatly contributed to positive behavioral changes of some of the participating students. Girls to Women offers structure, stability and accountability, which is an important part of a child's life.

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

the creativity and patience that is delivered from staff to student.

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

Respectful, bilingual, kind, caring, smart and had good communication skills.

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

Serve SOOOOOO many more students!
