Our Field Trip Was A Big Success Thanks to You!

April 25, 2016

Our Strong Women, Strong Girls (SWSG) annual educational field trip was held on Duquesne University’s campus Saturday, April 23. Thanks to your generosity towards our crowdfunding campaign, you helped bring our grade school mentees to campus for the day, which was filled with learning, laughs and lots of smiles! Many of our girls even remarked how they want to attend Duquesne University when they grow up!

This day is not just a highlight of the year for our mentees, but also for all of us students in SWSG. We are super appreciative that you provided us with this opportunity! THANK YOU!

Check out our gallery of photos from the day to see all of the smiles you made happen:
