Building Strong Girls
As advocates for women, our organization envisions a community where every girl and woman has the skills to succeed in life. Gamma Phi Beta’s philanthropic focus expresses our philanthropic mission, to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls, in today's world. Our philanthropic partner is Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a volunteer program that weaves training for a 5K run with fun, experience-based lessons that improve self-awareness, build a collection of positive experiences and inspire life-changing confidence through accomplishment. Gamma Phi Beta's philanthropic focus doesn't just address an existing challenge - we are building strong girls to proactively provide opportunities for long-term success by inspiring the leaders of tomorrow.
About Girls on the Run
We give girls the confidence to dream big. We inspire the female leaders of tomorrow. For nearly a century, we have committed to improving the lives of young girls by not only building stronger girls but stronger communities through them.
Our philanthropic mission is to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls. We work towards fulfilling our mission through our philanthropic focus, Building Strong Girls while supporting Girls On The Run.
Girls On The Run is an organization that is integrated into elementary and middle schools as an after school activity. The girls who sign up for Girls On The Run participate in learning about physical fitness, healthy lifestyle choices, tutoring and mentoring and empowerment all while training for a 5K race at the end of the 8 week program. As women, we are all who we are today because we had a mentor or coach who taught us what it means to be a strong girl and Gamma Phi Beta harvests these leadership skills to build strong girls for the future.
