Community Recognition

“The Schenectady Foundation sees the Working Group on Girls of Schenectady, Inc. (WGGS) as a critical investment for girls in our community who often come from extremely challenging backgrounds. It gives them hope, self-confidence and support to see that they can, in fact, have a dream–and with determination, fulfill it. We are leveraging the wellspring of passion and skill of trained, committed women volunteers who mentor and guide the girls through, what can be a very difficult time in their lives. Relationships are developed with the potential to have life-long impact.  The Schenectady Foundation is matching other contributions to WGGS because we believe it to be a vital component of what these girls need as a resource to have a shot at success in school and beyond.”
