Girls of Grit Summer Camp for Aspiring Teenagers Mid-South
Organized by: Lori Brasfield-Sanders
Girls of Grit is a non-profit summer camp for teenage girls in the Memphis, TN area.
Girls of Grit camp activities are designed to build leadership skills, self-confidence, service in the community, teamwork, exposure to traditionally male-dominated careers, and setting/meeting personal challenges and goals. We also have Life Skills workshops for older teenage girls to prepare them for building a resume and living within a budget.
Summer day camps involve multiple activities and field trips that test the girls' resolve, their commitment to self, and to help them purposely forge the woman they will become.
Many leaders in the community are offering their goods and services for a reduced fee, but we still have a $129 enrollment fee for each girl. Memphis has a high poverty rate, and we are seeking to establish scholarship funds for those girls who cannot afford the full fee to attend. Your $$ may afford a girl an opportunity she may have never had--get ready to change a life!!
