“We are extremely excited to have been selected for the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) grant. With these funds, we will be able to mentor 120 girls within the community, helping not only these girls and their families, but the community in which we reside as well,” said Victoria Waterman, CEO, Girls Inc. of Worcester.

The funds are part of a $2 million, two-year grant awarded to the Girls Inc. national office.

The funds will support Bold Futures, a weekly group mentoring program providing girls consistent, in-depth programming and experiences to strengthen their coping skills, reduce risk factors, prevent entry into the juvenile justice system, and increase family engagement.
