Girls’ Day Out 2017

What a wonderful day!

There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude to all of our volunteers, facilitators, and other community members who have demonstrated such generosity, kindness, wisdom, compassion, and dedication to improving the lives of girls in Schenectady. Girls’ Day Out would not happen without them.

There was plenty of joy and laughter and learning at Girls’ Day Out. Here are some images from the day. Special thanks to Catherine Snyder for many of these photos as well as the video below.
