Girls With Gifts - It's a Movement!
Girls with Gifts Presents The Reach Back Pull Forward Experience
Suicide. Teen pregnancy. Scholastic underachievement. Generational, cyclical poverty and financial dependence. Girls of diverse backgrounds, across various communities, face the risk of these discouraging realities each day. These girls are too often overlooked and underserved. Their passions may be stifled by a lack of resources available to help them achieve their goals. Their potential may be unrealized, due to limited experience and feelings of inadequacy.
In an effort to defeat these risks amongst girls who dream beyond just the boundaries of their communities, Girls With Gifts, Inc. has crafted a unique and exciting summer experience through Reach Back, Pull Forward Los Angeles and Reach Back, Pull Forward Houston.
Over the last 4 years, the Reach Back, Pull Forward Experience has provided an enriching opportunity for more than 65 selected girls in Flint, Los Angeles and Houston. They have received one-on-one mentorship from GWG Mentors – a high-powered coalition of accomplished women who work in each Mentee’s field of interest. Mentees have been directly exposed to professional arts and entertainment careers through a week-long intensive, aimed to inspire, educate and enable them to reach their highest potential.
You can gift the Reach Back, Pull Forward Experience to a talented young girl in 2017! With your contribution of $2,500 for RBPF LA or $1,800 for RBPF Houston, you will sponsor one girl for this intensive week of character-building and skill-strengthening. You will expose her to community-oriented, professional women who are personally invested in her success. You will give her access to career opportunities she may not have known existed. This exposure will create the potential for positive life outcomes, which will ultimately improve the community, the nation and the world.
Throughout the RBPF Experience, Girls With Gifts focuses on its core principles of:
All Girls with Gifts are capable of exhibiting strong character through personal development and soft skills strengthening.
All Girls with Gifts desire to Reach Back and Pull Forward in service to others.
All Girls with Gifts are convinced that they play an important role in making the world a better place, by sharing their gifts with society.
