1,000 Girls & One Great Empowerment Program
A $100,000 grant from the New York Community Trust is enabling us to scale Real As Me, our award-winning girls’ empowerment and social-emotional learning program.
The program pairs stories by our teen writers with story-based lessons and professional development. Girls and educators love the stories and lessons. Educators use them to prompt reflection about choices as small as what to post on social media or as big as how to handle an abusive relationship.
The grant is helping us train staff at 10 schools and community based organizations to use Real As Me with 1,000 young women.
