Join Chester County Fund for Women and Girls for our second annual Girls in Action Summit. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting a virtual Summit on Monday, May 18, 2020, from 3:00-5:00pm.
Inspired by our award-winning Girls Advisory Board (GAB) girls' grantmaking and leadership program, the Summit engages high school girls throughout Chester County for an empowering afternoon of action. Attendees will learn about the deep and varied needs in their communities while engaging in strategic grantmaking.
This year, we are thrilled to welcome keynote speaker Mo'ne Davis! A Philadelphia native, Mo'ne was one of two girls who played in the 2014 Little League World Series. She has an amazing story to tell about strength and pursuing her passions.
As a Summit participant, each girl will have a chance to:
• Connect virtually with fellow teens throughout Chester County
• Hear from leaders of local non-profits about how COVID-19 is impacting the women and girls they serve
• Be inspired by keynote speaker Mo'ne Davis
• Give back to her community by helping to award two $500 grants to local non-profits
• Learn about local girls with their own businesses and other resources for girls
Each attendee will also be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize!
