Great Girls help girls in Gr 11 or 12 to become successful women. The program assists them while they are at school. Once they graduate from our program we keep in touch for a further 2 and a half years. We do quarterly check ins to see where they are in their lives. Are they studying, working, doing a learnership or unemployed and how we can assist. The Alumni projects have 4 programs during the year which enhances there career. eg. Coding, alternative careers, etc. Funds are needed for this.

We would like to see them with a stable job or studying towards an impacting career. Girls might be excited when doing our initial program, but when the reality of life after school hits, they need someone to show them the ropes and guide them to becoming successful women. When they experience a setback we can motivate them.
