Building Future Leaders
WGIRLS DC has partnered with the Girls Global Academy, an all girls high school aimed at building future leaders in the fields of Science, Technology and Engineering (STEM) and Business. Our DC chapter has helped to support this brand new school in a variety of ways: raising funds to ensure that every student has a school uniform and necessary supplies, handing out supplies, offering mentorship and now as a lead sponsor of the school’s first upcoming annual Sisterhood Summit.
Supporting Distance Learning
WGIRLS NYC partnered with the Children of Promise Network an organization that strives to embrace children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. Our partnership provided the children at Children of Promise Network with over $30,000 dollars in technology equipment to support their online learning throughout the pandemic.
Connecting Children to Reading
WGIRLS Chicago partnered with Open Books for the first annual WGIRLS Chicago book drive. Open Books is a nonprofit that provides literacy experiences and inspiring programs for tens of thousands of readers each year through the sale of new and gently used donated books. Through various book donations, WGIRLS Chicago was able to provide Open Books with 1,200 books for the program.
