Women’s Way, the local catalyst organization aimed at impacting women, girls, and families, has a new program specifically geared toward teen girls.
Through training, support and interactive activities, the Philly Girls Fund will prepare the girls to think strategically, prioritize needs and allocate funds to selected organizations dedicated to fighting for gender justice, while empowering them to understand the issues their grants will address and the impact of their work.
Participants will meet from October to December 2015 to select organizations to be funded through the Philly Girls Fund. Participants each receive a $100 stipend, tokens to get to and from meetings and the opportunity to present their grants at the 2016 Women’s Way Powerful Voice Award on April 28, 2016.
The Philly Girls Fund will bring together young women from all over Philadelphia. The participants will determine funding priorities, put out a call for proposals and evaluate the organizations that apply for funding.
Application to the program is free and can be completed on the Women’s Way website by August 28. Questions can be directed to Debasri Ghosh at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-986-0333 ext. 225.
Applicants will be selected based on their interest in solving problems that affect girls and women in Philadelphia, as well as their availability to meet the first Thursday of every month from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Women’s Way office at 123 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19109.
