Lightning Help Disadvantaged Youth Thrive Through Confident Girls Foundation
The smiles! The small but special moments! The ability to make REAL change…
In 2019 we were privileged to team up with one of our charity partners the Confident Girls Foundation to run five netball clinics as well as a Hervey Bay Community visit throughout the year – engaging hundreds of young women in the community.
The program centres around giving disadvantaged youth the opportunity to train with Lightning players, build confidence and have a bit of fun!
Through facilitating inclusive netball programs and clinics the Confident Girls Foundation, in partnership with Lightning, are breaking down gender bias, removing financial barriers and creating leadership opportunities.
The program also encourages healthy living and getting active in a fun and encouraging way.
We can’t wait for another year partnering with both the foundation and community participants in 2020!
