Review for Girls Incorporated of Tarrant County, Arlington, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

It was important for me to make a difference in my community by helping young adults prepare for their future. Girl's Inc. of Tarrant County provided me not only that opportunity, but brought so much more. I saw a group of leaders passionate about helping these young adults by creating strong programs to prepare them for something "bigger." I saw mentors & speakers that overcame obstacles to achieve success. I saw young adults realize that the future was bright if they applied themselves. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me to be a part of this organization.

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

One on One contact with the girls. Seeing them excel or be inspired to reach higher.

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

Build a more robust program to target doners for volunteer opportunities. Share with doners & volunteers the impact their contributions have made. Get more active in social media to build better engagement with parents, young adults, & others facing similiar challenges, who may not be in your community.

Role:  Volunteer & I led career preparation courses & a brainstorming session around how to not follow the crowd.
