ROCHESTER, N.Y. - For the 2023-2024 school year, the Girls Rising in Leadership (GRL) Club will be on-site at World of Inquiry School thanks to a $25,000 grant awarded by ESL Federal Credit Union. Forty (40) girls in grades 9-12 will be participating in hands-on leadership training that has been designed to provide a safe space for mentorship, skill development, collaboration and exposure. Participants will also be eligible to earn up to $200 based on their GPA and overall program attendance. “We are very excited and grateful for this funding from ESL as it allows Jazz Network to provide a safe and supportive space for girls to cultivate their leadership skills, discover their passions, and build lasting friendships.
