  • Through Girls in the Game, I have gained experience. All the health, sports and leadership workshops, and interviews I have done have made me more comfortable in my ability to lead and trained me to become more confident, step out of my comfort zone and truly prepare for any future career. I’m glad to have been challenged and to even get my first job as a camp counselor this past summer with Girls in the Game. It was an experience I will never forget.

  • Through Girls in the Game, I learned that when you expose young girls to new ideas, it allows them the opportunity to think for themselves. In doing so, girls gain the courage to act on their own.
