     Each presenter will share a brief description of the organization and the work that we do, give an overview of the ways in which our collaborative works and then lead an activity for those in attendance.

The Girl Power Collaborative was created in 2018 for the purpose of bringing together non-profit organizations that supported women and girls.
      Four women came together, discussed how this could work, what fundraisers we could put together and who would do what. We all fell into our strengths
and have worked easily together for the last 5 years. No egos, no divas, no stress - just each getting the job done.
      Who are these wonderful women and their organizations?
Kate McDonald, Executive Director of Girls on the Run
