Give the gift of Transportation
If you are looking to make a difference and support our youth, please consider sponsoring travel in the form of Uber or taxi rides to and from sessions and mandatory events.
We are realizing our goal of bringing a diverse group of girls together through our Leadership Academy program – diversity of sport, diversity of ethnicity, diversity of geography. Of the 25 girls we admitted into the program this year, 23 zip codes in and around Philadelphia are represented. Program participants hail from South Jersey, Garnet Valley, north, south and west Philadelphia, and many more neighborhoods. Transportation is a common problem in the youth sports world and while we celebrate this diversity, getting participants to and from sessions becomes even more challenging. As sophomores in high school, our students are not yet driving and must rely on parents and guardians who often have multiple commitments and competing priorities.
This Giving Tuesday, please consider supporting our students through donated rides to the mandatory monthly sessions in Manayunk. For $30, you can provide a round-trip Uber or taxi ride to one session.
$210 represents the cost of a round-trip Uber or taxi ride to all 7 mandatory sessions.
$90 provides 1 student a round-trip Uber or taxi ride to 3 Leadership Academy events outside of the mandatory sessions – the annual Holiday Party, the MLK Day Captains’ Practice Leadership Conference, and the Leadership Academy Graduation in May.
Since we are almost halfway through our Leadership Academy program for the ’23-’24 school year, $120 would provide 1 student a round-trip Uber or taxi ride to all 4 remaining spring semester sessions.
There are so many ways to support our female athletes and any amount helps us provide transformative programming to help girls become FIT TO LEAD.
