When I was a young, all I wanted to do was run around and play outside. And even though I didn't understand it at the time, it was because feeling confident and strong physically usually helped me feel confident mentally. And even after growing up in an generation where "you throw like a girl" is an insult, GirlVentures is a perfect example of an organization that's trying to empower young women (cis, trans, female identifying, gender nonconforming) through phsycial and mental achievement.
By providing programs like rock climbing and hiking/camping, GirlVentures takes on step (literally and metaphorically) towards bridging the gap between what young women are told they can do and what they actually can do. I'm so proud to be part of the Ambassador's Circle as a junior board member and I wish that I discovered this when I was young.
Help me support this amazing organization by donating. This money will go towards providing sponsorships for lower income participants and to ensure that every young woman has the chance to rise to the challenge.
