NEW! FRESH Program

WGGS is excited to share with you FRESH (Food Resiliency Education Socialization and Health). We are partnering with Cornell Cooperative Extension and SICM to implement this program. The goals of FRESH are to educate, empower, mentor, and provide sustainable life skills to the girls in the Schenectady Community. FRESH is available to girls in elementary, middle and high school.

FRESH was piloted last year in three different schools, with an incredible array of exciting opportunities where girls learned new skills and benefited from interacting with each other in small, safe settings. It was so successful that each FRESH leader asked that it be offered again at their school this year. Thus, WGGS continues its journey, responding to girls’ needs, creating safe spaces, and growing a community that cares about girls.
