What is the grant for and how will it benefit the community?
Girls Inspired and Ready to Lead’s mission is to mentor and empower teen girls, especially girls of color, for future success in fields where women are underrepresented through career exploration, confidence building, and leadership development. The $25,000 grant from Invest in Others will be used to expand the organization’s ‘Pathways to Careers Program’ which currently provides high school girls with college and career preparation workshops, opportunities to network with women from diverse career fields, and worksite visits to local companies. This expansion will include the development of an internship program.
