As the 2018 year comes to a close, we can’t believe it’s already time to celebrate the #GivingTuesday on November, 27, 2018 and the kick-off to our end-of-year fundraising campaign. We’ve had an amazing year of WYSE, celebrating 25 years! (Can you believe it?!)
Besides working with hundreds of middle school girls across the United States, our mentors have worked hard in their communities whether it was in session, on campus, or during WYSE Week. (Read a story of how WYSE Berkeley celebrated on their campus here.) Every year, our impact becomes more clear.
Did you know…?
98% of WYSE mentees would recommend WYSE to other girls.
98% of WYSE college mentors believe WYSE helped them be more involved in in their community.
100% of WYSE mentees believe WYSE helped them gain confidence in their ability to make healthy decisions to achieve their goals.
WYSE wouldn’t exist without our generous donors. Which is why this Giving Tuesday, we especially appreciate you for connecting to our mission and believing in the work we do.
