We were fortunate enough to grow up with amazing women role models in our life. Without the positive influence and support we’ve received throughout our lives from our mothers, teachers, peers and mentors, we would not have been able to start Wild Friends.
Not all girls are as fortunate as we are to have these positive role models close at hand. We want to pay it forward by encouraging young girls to have the confidence in themselves to follow their dreams. This is why we are proud to support Girls Inc of the Pacific NW as our official Nonprofit partner.
Each year, Wild Friends will provide scholarships to 25 young girls ages 6+ in the Pacific Northwest to attend the Girls Inc after-school programs. These programs are run by trained professionals and focus on supporting, mentoring, and guiding girls in an arming, pro-girl environment. Here, girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
We are so excited to be able to give young girls this opportunity, just as we have had.
