GIRLS TODAY, LEADERS TOMORROW
What happens when you invest in women and girls?
You lift entire communities. United Way believes that “women’s issues” are everyone’s issues. That’s why we work to promote women and girls’ leadership, education and health to ensure our region’s girls are equipped to become our leaders of tomorrow.
Through the Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow program, United Way supports community and school-based activities that focus on helping 6th and 7th grade girls build self-esteem, honor their bodies and maintain healthy relationships with their peers. The Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow program supports attitudes and behaviors related to the “six pillars of character”– trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
“United Way has made such a positive difference in my life. Before, I was very self-conscious, which sometimes held me back from trying new things. After being a part of this program, I now have no problem working in groups and taking charge. United Way helped me become comfortable in my skin as I face life’s challenges.” – Jasmin, 2008 GTLT graduate; now a college freshman
