Mission Statement

The goal of GLAD is to help girls develop stregnths and skills for school and work, and to resist peer pressures that lead to early pregnancy.

Description

GLAD is a program of the Boys and Girls Aid Society for young women ages 12-18 from Lane and Binnsmead Middle Schools and Marshall High School. GLAD consists of weekly meetings, community service projects, recreational and educational field trips, and an 8-week summer program. WHAT DO THE GILRS SAY? "Because of GLAD, I am proud to be who I am, I am proud to be a woman." (Sybil, 13) "I learned that a lot of girls have gone through the same thing I have, and they are willing to talk about it. We learn about sexual harrasment and drugs, and how to take care of oureselves." (Sara, 12) "I have people in GLAD I can trust" (Yessica, 13)
