Mission: DIG it! inspires urban girls to lead healthy, confident lives through an after-school program that integrates an activity-centered curriculum with volleyball instruction.
Need: Many urban schools lack quality after-school programming for young girls. Girls in these schools are in need of more opportunities that promote physical activity and wellness education for females.
Program: DIG it!is a 12-week program for 5th and 6th grade girls that will run from late-January through April at two urban elementary schools in St. Louis
Curriculum: GoGirlGo! is an educational activity-centered curriculum that puts an emphasis on reducing and preventing the potential hazards of dealing with childhood and adolescent issues in unhealthy ways.
We are currently looking for monetary gifts that will support several areas of the program. These gifts will help finance the administrative costs, new net systems, and transportation costs. For more information on the program itself, how to volunteer, or how to make a gift in support of its mission, please contact:
