GIRLs (Growing Impactful and Resourceful Leaders) Program

The GIRLs program began in 2020 in response to the overwhelming number of young women who applied to our Youth Leadership program. The GIRLs program is unique in that it provides a safe and nuturing environment for young women to discover what it means to be a leader. GIRLs meets on one Monday evening per month at St. Mary’s College where participants learn from women leaders in the community, collaborate on community service projects and practice skills to lead in their schools, homes, and communities. Dinner and snacks are provided. The cost for the GIRLs program is $100 for the year. Aid is available if needed. Contact Kristine Hilger Carles [email protected] or 574-314-9090 for more informantion.
