How Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta Is Impacting Young Girls
BGCMA reaches an average of 1,380 girls ages 6-18 every day in 27 Clubs across the region, many of whom come from single-parent, economically disadvantaged homes. The Women's Giving Circle has been created to help fund programs designed specifically for these girls. The programs focus on academics, self-confidence, leadership skills, and healthy lifestyles - things these young women need to be successful in life.
Donations from Women's Giving Circle members will be used to support existing programs like SMART Girls, Girl Power Summit and Youth of the Year, as well as to develop new programs that address the evolving needs of young women in our community.
