THE STORY:

Dear friends,

I've been volunteering with ClubGEN, a program within the Girls Empowerment Network of Austin (GENaustin: http://genaustin.org/) for the last year, where I work to help girls build the confidence and awareness they need to successfully navigate their pre-teen and teen years.  

Evaluation results prove that girls who are very engaged with our long-term programming – 8 hours or more – have higher rates of school attendance and are less likely to get into trouble. 

90% of girls who attend 8 or more hours of GENaustin’s services:

  • Have better body image than their peers
  • Gain effective relationship skills
  • Learn decision-making skills for their futures
  • Have a group where they know they belong

Program Coordinator Claudia Garate and I have built a supportive environment at Allison Elementary where girls get to explore what really matters to them—like creating healthy friendships, breaking down negative media messages, and practicing assertive communication.

Our fundraising motto this year is "One girl at a time, we can turn “I’m so fat” or “I’m so ugly” to “I am beautiful because of who I am, not how I look.'"

Please consider sponsoring one of the thousands of central Texas girls who are in need of access to programs like clubGEN at Allison Elementary.*
