"What I love about GTC is that this program gives girls a chance to explore their strengths and virtues that can illuminate the path ahead. I can’t say enough about GTC and would encourage every mother (or father) to give this priceless gift to their daughter."

"Girls Take Charge taught my daughter that it is cool to be a leader, admirable to inspire others, and empowering to be a team player. Seven years later, she is about to graduate from Villanova University and holds numerous key leadership positions on campus."

"Little did I know how much I would love GTC and that I would return for the next two summers as a participant, then become a counselor for the program years later. GTC taught me the skills to become the leader I am today,"
