GSNWGL Co-Recipient of $500,000 Imagine the Future Impact Grant
The Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay, part of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, is pleased to present the Imagine the Future Impact grant to the collaboration co-led by Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay and Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, melding the proven expertise of both of these organizations to create a new, game-changing initiative to transform the individual lives of Brown County girls. The focus will be on building the character traits, leadership skills, and goal setting frameworks for young girls while setting them up for a lifetime of success.
This collaboration will test and hone a pilot at two sites initially, engaging at-risk girls in the fourth grade primarily from the Green Bay Area Public School District on a variety of levels and over multiple years. Each girl participating will be assigned a long-term adult advocate, with whom she will meet weekly, and will attend weekly group meetings that offer a standard curriculum aimed to expose girls to “what can be” in their lives and help them overcome personal obstacles to reach their dreams. In addition, caregivers will be regularly engaged to help them embrace the important roles they play in the lives of their daughters. (more…)
