This year's President's Project is Girls on the Run (GOTR). GOTR is an after-school program for elementary and middle school aged girls. This program reaches girls at a critical stage, strengthening their confidence at a time when society begins to tell them they can't. It is the only program of its kind that focuses on the important connection of mind and body. This organization's curriculum focuses on a combination of targeted lessons and physical activity that instills confidence and nurtures compassion in every girl. Girls on the Run teaches life skills like managing emotions, resolving conflict, helping others, and making intentional decisions.
To help support this project, the Grand Lodge has released Pi Alpha fanny packs for $20 with the proceeds benefiting Girls on the Run. Chapters are also encouraged to volunteer with their local Girls on the Run groups!
