A little recap of our first few weeks💕 starting off strong with lots of singing, exploration, creativity, dancing, and self discovery! ...

“Three full years of GirlUp GVL. We have done so much in three short full years. We are trying our best to be the best for the girls so they can be their best in spite of living in an unjust and unfair world. For those who know me - like the OG girls and families - know that GirlUp GVL is far beyond an afterschool or summer program. It truly is living out my heart. And as fulfilling as that is - It’s also incredibly hard to open up your heart to an entire community. There are thoughts, assumptions, opinions, politics. And at the same time, there are incredibly kind, supportive, encouraging people who see the vision and have been beyond generous in their support and collaborative response. Thank you to everyone who has believed in me, the girls, and the mission of #girlupgvl. We are forever grateful 💕” - @kimkmogan, Founder & Executive Director ...

Mentally we’re here.
As we are transitioning to the school year, we have been reminiscing on the all the fun we were able to have this summer. Our programming kicks off next week and we are ready to kick off a new year filled with lots more fun and new experiences! 💕
