We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our project in 2011, as well as those who have continued to donate into the New Year. No matter the amount, your gift has made an impact on our project and for that we are grateful!

A recent success from the program involved two Young Women’s Leadership Program graduates who were recognized as Youth Community Asset Champions by the Shasta County Public Health and the Health Improvement Partnership. One of the graduates is now working as a community health outreach worker in Shasta County.

As we move into the New Year we are filled with excitement as we continue to plan for our next Young Women’s Leadership program scheduled for this summer in Chico, California. Some of the plans include inviting past participants to co-lead one of the workshops, recruitment of presenters and development of even more interactive activities.

So here’s to 2012 and the launching of another Young Women’s Leadership Program made possible by your support!

As we plan for our next Young Women’s Leadership Program scheduled for summer 2012, we must continue our fundraising efforts to ensure the program will be available for young women in the years to come.

Beginning on Wednesday, October 19, GlobalGiving is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor! That means every donation during this window of time will be worth more. This wonderful opportunity to maximize your donation is only available from 12:01 am EDT on October 19 until 11:59pm EDT or until the matching funds of $100,000 run out.

In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is also offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors.

Make the most of your donation to the Young Women’s Leadership Program project and donate on Wednesday, October 19!

Thank you for your continued support!
