Dear GlobalGiving Community,
Thank you for your continued interest in supporting Girls To Women and most importantly the girls we serve who are well on their to a successful womanhood. We are glad to provide you with the following update on Girls To Women's Fall 2010 after-school program.
During this first half of the 2010-2011 school year, Girls To Women participants have been busy with school work and, setting and meeting the personal goals they set for themselves. Families continue to come to us with specific goals for their girls, whether it be that extra help in math, science or English. As always Girls To Women makes the aspirations of these girls and their families, the aspirations of Girls To Women. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to seeing all of the participants succeed and will go the extra mile in supporting the girls. During winter break, one of the staff members met with Madeleine, 3rd grader, to work one-on-one on Madeleine's reading. Madeleine said the following on why she enjoys attending Girls To Women's after-school program, "My favorite thing about Girls To Women is that I love that they help me with my homework. I am getting more stars and happy faces from my teacher, and that makes me happy."
Please see attached report for further information on the Fall 2010 update!
We are glad to share our most recent update on our project, specifically Girls to Women's 2010 summer program!
Summer Program was multi-themed inclusive of arts and fitness activities but definitely included academics, especially literacy-building. Every morning all participants played group games outdoors to build teamwork, fitness, and overall health. Summer Program also included a daily hour of "Reading Time" during which participants either read to themselves or in a group for twenty minutes. After Reading Time was over participants could either continue reading or engage in a learning game for the rest of the hour. We found that the older girls enjoyed reading with younger girls, and these interactions clearly helped to make literacy a fun and bonding experience. Furthermore, every Wednesday participants participated in activities such as “Wheel of Fortune” and “Minute to Win It” races that emphasized problem-solving, numerical reasoning, and vocabulary skills-building.
For more detailed information on our summer program, including pictures, please read the attached report. Thank you for your support!!!
