G3: Getting Girls in the Game

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Our team has responded to a call from the City of Boston to get urban female youth more actively engaged in and have equal access to sport programming. By following our global mission of educating and inspiring at-risk youth through basketball, we have partnered with Boston Public and Charter schools to launch Getting Girls in the Game, a free sport-for-development program open to all Boston inner city girls. G3 enrolls elementary through high school girls.

PROGRAM GOAL:

The primary goal of G3 Boston is to provide a safe, supportive, sport-based response to barriers in girls' health, self-esteem, and access to regularly scheduled physical activity. 

How We Do This:

G3 fulfills the mission of Shooting Touch to use basketball to educate and empower at-risk youth, women and their families through various programs aligning with our 3 objectives:

Promote equal access to physical activity and wellness

Provide health and educational services

Empower communities to create social change
