The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they’re showing their support for Girls For A Change.
I was selected for this opportunity byClever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
I’m pretty picky about what sponsored posts I will write. I won’t share just anything with you guys so I can make a buck. When this offer came to me, I instantly said yes. This is something I can get behind!
I’m really excited to share with you the opportunity to support a really great cause!Girls For A Change is an organization that empowers girls to create social change by inviting young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods.
Even though I have three boys I have a soft spot in my heart for young girls. Especially girls who have limited opportunities before them. I can remember being a young girl and the struggles to find yourself and fit in and they are still fresh in my mind. Girls who do not have the loving support and insightful wisdom of stable women NEED someone to step up and take that role. I love that there are women doing just that with the Girls For A Change program.
Here is an excerpt from theGirls For A Change website that explains more about what they do:
Girls For A Change empowers young women to create change in their own communities with the guidance of adult women. About 5-10 girls and two women “coaches” make up a Girl Action Team. Teams design and implement a social change project that will make a lasting change in their neighborhood, city or school. More than 100 Girl Action Teams meet across the US and internationally each year. Check out how Girl Action Teams are transforming the world in your city.
