Join me in supporting the Lower Eastside Girls Club in 2019. The Angel Alliance works annually to support the LES Girls Club throgh independent and group fundraising events. If you are not able to attend any of Olivia's Yoga fundraisers in 2019 but still love supporting an awesome cause, feel free to donate here!
The Lower Eastside Girls Club is a 501(c)3 that breaks the cycle of poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial, and environmental leaders. Girls Club members overcome adversity, perceive opportunity, develop self-confidence, make ethical decisions and healthy life choices, thrive academically, embrace leadership, and have the ability to enter college or the workforce as fully prepared and connected adults.
The Girls Club’s 35,000 square foot Center for Community provides over 50 unique classes a week and hosts a number of special events for the community and supporters. Facilities include a Maker Shop for engineering and coding; Biology lab for STEM programming and research; Alphabet City Art School for visual arts and crafts; Center for Media and Social Justice for digital media and photography; Sound Studio for music production and our radio station/podcast, WGRL (Where Girl Radio Lives); Design Shop for fashion design; a rooftop farm; full culinary kitchen and cafe; and 64-seat state-of the art, 30-foot dome planetarium. If you’re interested in learning more, visit www.girlsclub.org, and check out what they are up to lately via our podcast, Vimeo, and Instagram and Tumblr.
