THANK YOU – we are proud to have donors like you in our corner! Last year, your gift supported TEN different girls in attending our after-school program that equips girls to lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. This year we are including another vital community focus in our programming.
Did you know that…
- Twenty-five percent of kids are bullied online?
- 1 out 4 students in middle school and high school have been bullied?
- Fifty percent of bullying behaviors will stop in less than ten seconds when another student intervenes?
While the statistics may be surprising, they often hit very close to home. Every day, bullying instances occur in our very own community. We knew that incorporating an anti-bullying program into our after-school and summer camp programming was a must. In the 2016-17 academic year, Girls Inc. will be offering a brand new anti-bullying program designed by MARC (Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center) from Bridgewater State University.
We need individuals and businesses like you who invest in Girls Inc. each year to continue to foster our distinct and necessary environment. Your donation of $425 will provide a full sponsorship to one girl. Your gift, in any amount, will make a life-changing difference for any one of our members. You can make a gift today by mail or on our website. On behalf of all the girls, thank you!
Jessica Johnstone Darling,
With you in her corner, she will succeed!
