On April 3rd at Wick’s in New Albany, Indiana, Impact 100 Southern Indiana presented an update on the self-esteem bootcamp that it funded. In attendance at the Wick’s event were over thirty current and prospective members.
The group heard from Angie Graf, Executive Director of Hope Southern Indiana. Graf’s organization was awarded $100,000 to put on a series of self-esteem bootcamps for local teenage girls and provided an update on how the grant was going.
“So many people in the community have reached out to see how they can help with the camp,” she said.
The camp will last an entire weekend and the agenda includes self-defense instruction, suicide prevention/mental health, nutrition, safe social media, yoga, coping skills, collaborative art, interpretive dance, zip-lining, and much, much more.
The fifty spots for the camp, set to take place later this month, are filled and girls have begun to register for the next camp as well. In total, the Impact 100 grant will fund four camps, for a total of 200 girls.
Impact 100 Southern Indiana’s goal is to empower women to dramatically improve lives by collectively funding significant grants that make a lasting impact for women and children in Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties in Southern Indiana.The $100,000 grant was made possible by the financial contributions of more than 160 women who joined as members of the Impact 100 Southern Indiana.
The group is looking for new members for its 2019 grant. Membership is open to any woman who wants to make be a part of transformational change in her community. Membership closes June 1st and 100% of membership dollars go to the charity selected that year.
