This Year in Numbers
It’s hard to distill a year at GLI into numbers. We prefer to count the “aha!” moments, the risks taken, and the level of laughter in our workshops. Until we find a laughing meter, here is how we can summarize this year for you:
- 1500 families participated in our parent-daughter programs
- 112 girls joined us for day camp, half of them on full scholarship
- 60 educators participated in our 3-day intensive training
- 180 girls will live with us for three weeks at our life-changing residential camp
- Over 2500 parents attended a Raising Resilient Girls parent education night
Over 6,500 people across the country participated in Girls Leadership Institute programs this year! That is how we change the face of leadership.
A Mother’s Gratitude
Your generous contributions have enabled us to provide deserving girls with Summer Camp scholarships –– scholarships that make a world of difference to the girls and their families. Robin, the mother of two past scholarship recipients, says it best:
“It is with huge gratitude that I write you this note and thank you from the bottom of my heart. The gift of a scholarship for both my girls was a dream come true. It is hard being a single mom, wanting to make the best choices for my kids, yet with limited resources. I am so proud of my girls and the young ladies they have become, and your program has been the main contributor to helping them become such confident girls.
“At GLI Summer Camp, my daughters made new friends, met new mentors, and expanded their horizons. We live in a small town where much of life is fairly predictable. Traveling to the East Coast from Montana was scary for my girls, but both felt self-assured by the time they returned. They had a blast and are still talking about it.
“I want my girls to know that all things are possible if you are willing to travel out of your comfort zone. Thank you to all who support this wonderful experience.”
