Voices of Experience is an after school educational program that features accomplished women role models from diverse backgrounds speaking about their lives, education and careers. The program includes a presentation by the role models, open mike session, and reception with pizza and cookies. Four women will share stories about how they overcame challenges to achieve their goals. The girls will then be encouraged to ask questions and share their stories through an open mike session.

Voices of Expe­ri­ence focuses on “life expe­ri­ence” for girls. Through this pro­gram, the Women’s Foun­da­tion of Gene­see Val­ley empha­sizes the impor­tance of a woman hav­ing an edu­ca­tion and/or the skills to take care of her­self financially.

Here is what some of the girls had to say about the program:

  • I was inspired, I cried, it was touch­ing, I am not alone, we are not alone.
  • I was inspired by all of the sto­ries, they opened my eyes and heart and I can do any­thing I set myself to do.
  • Thank you for help­ing us to find our voices and inspire each other.
  • This pro­gram was sim­ply amazing.
  • Keep doing what you guys are doing; you rock!

The Women’s Foun­da­tion sin­cerely thanks the role mod­els, vol­un­teers and the sup­port­ers (see sidebar) for help­ing to sup­port Voices of Experience.

Established in 1997, the program has reached over 4,500 girls to help empower and inspire them to achieve economic self-sufficiency and to reach their full potential.
