Description

GUTS! (Girls Using Their Strengths) Girls Leadership Project:

GUTS! is a unique, community-based

leadership and empowerment project

designed by and for young women, ages

10-18. The GUTS! program

encourages young women to explore

their own personal values and discover

their strengths through wilderness

adventures in the summer, continuing

through the school year with after school

groups and community service projects.

GUTS!' goals are to (1) create a

supportive and inquiring environment in

which young women can look closely at

who they are, gaining the confidence

and clarity to make constructive, healthy

choices in their lives, and (2) to

encourage participants to be effective

leaders in their communities and the

world.
