Connect With Us!
With the holiday season upon us Girls with Goals Alliance would like to invite you to support us on #Giving Tuesday! Helping girls connect with mentors so they can be the change in their community is a wonderful way to give back, while paying it forward. We are asking you to donate and contribute to Girls with Goals Alliance, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that mentors girls ages 9-18 by helping them to improve academics and build leadership skills that will help them make their community a better place. Our community service cause for 2017 #Giving Tuesday is to raise funds for flashlights and batteries for disaster victims of Puerto Rico.

OUR VISION: OUR HOPE
Girls with Goals Alliance envisions a community in which every youth experiences nurturing one-to-one relationships and community support, which in turn allows each of them to develop their full potential, capable of making informed, responsible decisions before using illegal drugs, alcohol, violence, skipping school, staying in school, graduating on time.
Opportuni-Tea 2017, "Dreams in Action"
Whether you're giving your TIME, TALENTS, or TREASURES to mentoring a youth, the impact will be great! Please donate to the 'Mentoring Effect' that is evident in the girls that are mentored by a caring adult mentor. Help us continue the impact of empowering, and encouraging them to make the right choices about academics, behavior, and careers after high school. Your donation of $25 will help with S.T.E.A.M. workshops, $50 will pay for field trips and cultural events and $100 will provide training and recruitment of new volunteers. Thank you in advance.

Spending one hour each week – whether it’s helping with homework, playing games or just hanging out – means a young person has someone to turn to in moments big and small.
The report found that young people who were at risk for not completing high school but who had a mentor reported higher educational aspirations and matriculation into post-secondary education, as well as greater engagement in positive activities.
• 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor.
• 81% more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities.
• More than twice as likely to say they held a leadership position in a club or sports team.
• 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities.
• Nearly nine in ten respondents who had a mentor said they are now interested in becoming a mentor.
Group sessions held monthly for 'Passport to Success' workshops with the emphasis on STEM-focused activities and experiments; the girls participate in workshops, field trips, and conduct community service projects. They also give oral presentations on strong women leaders. Areas of concentration for Passport to Success are academics, leadership and community service.
