Did you know... 
In 2012, Women's Fund provided funding for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of El Dorado County (BBBS) to sponsor "Girls Circle of El Dorado." This collaborative project between BBBS, Herbert Green, and Markham Middle School served a total of 57 girls. Girls Circle met over a series of 30 weeks and addressed specific areas of concern considered to be the foundation of girls’ health: self-efficacy, perceived body image, and perceived social support and relationships with parents, peers, partners, and community. 

In the words of past BBBS Executive Director, Judy Knapp,  "You have allowed the girls to voice their experiences, gain skills to help themselves in everyday relationships and situations, and to pursue meaningful goals at school and beyond. It was truly a life-changing experience for all!"

Together, we inspire greatness in our community!
