In 2016, Girls in the Game Teen Squad opened a new chapter in Dallas, TX in partnership with the Fossil Foundation. We trained a group of teens from Denton High School in our sports, health and leadership curriculum so they could go out and lead programming in their communities for middle and elementary school girls. Teens also participated in Leader to Leader Interviews at Fossil’s headquarters in Dallas, learning more about the fashion and retail industry behind the scenes. Furthermore, by participating in Teen Squad, girls earn scholarship money for college! To date, we have awarded more than $10,000 in scholarships to Dallas Teen Squad participants.
This year, we’re looking to grow our Teen Squad program by doubling both the number girls involved with Teen Squad and the number of teen-led workshops. As we grow our programs in Dallas, we need your help more than ever. Together, through volunteering opportunities, fundraising and awareness events and social media, we will help empower the next generation of female gamechangers in Dallas.
