Next Virtual Circle Talk
VCT has been a wonderful experience and testament to the sense of community Generation Change is all about. If your middle school or high school aged daughter has not yet joined – we would love them to do so. To join, click registration link below. Our next sessions are this coming Wednesday evening, May 6th.
A letter from Brook and Jody
To the Generation Change community:
We, Brook and Jody, have been spending a great deal of time these last few weeks connecting, sharing, collaborating and dreaming – all virtually. Together, we have taken Generation Change into a new space with online engagement in our Virtual Circle Talks (VCT). Like so many other organizations, the changes our communities have had to adjust to are daunting. We hope our programming shifts have been helpful and encourage you to reach out to us with your thoughts and ideas. We are energized by the feedback received thus far! Looking ahead, we simply cannot wait to reconnect in-person. However, we know that won’t be for a while. It is with a heavy heart that we made the difficult decision to cancel our two summer programs for 2020 -- Girls' Leadership Camp and Girl Captain. These decisions did not come lightly and our next steps are still in "discussion mode." Again, this is why we are encouraging you to give us feedback. Reach out and let us know what your daughters’ needs are or perhaps what your needs are to support them as parent or guardian. Generation Change, as you may know, is a new nonprofit that was established to sustain Girls’ Leadership Camp and its newer programs: Boost and Girl Captain. Thanks to a few generous supporters, we were able to launch in a relatively short amount of time. If you are able to give during this difficult time, we hope that you will consider doing so by either clicking here or below. Your donations will help us maintain and expand programming to adjust and respond to new challenges. Generation Change is in this together! We are here to support each other! Fondly, Brook and Jody
VCT will continue through June!
If you have not registered for a VCT in the past, don’t hesitate to join now. Each week, Brook and the Dream Team present new ideas and fun activities along with old favorites such as Roses & Thorns. This virtual time together is for girls to connect and see familiar and new faces.
GLC and Girl Captain Canceled
Regrettably, summer programs are canceled for 2020. Both Girl Captain and Girls’ Leadership Camp are suspending activities for this coming summer. Each program will connect with its participants directly regarding next steps and refunds. In the meantime, if anyone has questions, don’t hesitate to email us via the link below.
