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

Rating: 5 stars  

Girls to Women (g2W) of East Palo Alto is providing a necessary resource for young women of color (and their families). Recently, g2W hosted a series of workshops for young women on the topics of self esteem and conflict resolution. The workshops were well organized, students were constantly engaged in the activities, and facilitators were topic-competent.

The activities included role-playing where the girls were asked to play out scnarios regarding violence, gossip and physical apprearance. It was at this point where the girls became active and were very willing and excited to share their ideas about what the significance and solutions of their scenarios were.

As a male attending this event, I also leanred a lot about how to talk to young women in my programs about the topics aformentioned. What I leanred has proven to be invaluable!

If there is any advice for Girls to Women, it is to keep on keepin' on!

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

...my own work. g2W has equipped me with tools to work with young women in academic/youth programming.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with more funding so that they can do MORE incredible work!
