WITH GENEROUS SUPPORT FROM: .
Shooting Touch currently provides programming in Boston and Rwanda and has served over 11,000 youth in the last nine years. But for the first time ever, Shooting Touch is focused on bringing the impact model we have successfully achieved in Rwanda back to Beantown. Our goal is to give back and impact our local youth. September 17th was a celebration to remember, highlighting not only our work around the world, but also showcasing our G3 Program (Getting Girls In the Game). Currently serving the Greater Boston community in partnership with The Boston Police Department and operating out of Dorchester's Epiphany School, we enroll over 75 low income middle school females and provide them with a safe, supportive, sport-based response to barrier's in girls' health education, physical activity and self-esteem.
