How does Sponsorship help Ophelia Girls?
The Ophelia Model includes a Student Success Agenda promoting Career Readiness and Life Skills that continues through community college and university levels. By Sponsoring one or more Ophelia Girls, you will be assuring that this Education Partnership serves girls through their high school years; you will be helping to sustain the Ophelia Project, assuring that the benefits of the Ophelia Project are offered to future generations of girls, building stronger young women and strengthening the fabric of our communities. It really takes a village!
How does an Ophelia Sponsorship work?
You select the sponsorship program of your choice; submit the information and donation amount to the Ophelia Project of Coachella Valley. Often groups of friends or social clubs become Sponsors, matching each other’s Sponsorship. Every sponsorship brings change to more than just one young girl - it strengthens an entire community as the benefits your gift provides will extend to each girl's family, their community, and other youth in their sphere of influence. Many, many individuals are positively impacted by every single Ophelia Girl sponsorship.
Will I get to know my sponsored Ophelia Girls?
You will be given a variety of opportunities to personally meet and interact with Ophelia Girls by attending events that take place during the school year or by attending the Annual End of Year Ophelia event. You will know your girl(s) first name and be able to see first-hand the growth and tremendous difference your sponsorship has made…. a difference that will change not only the lives of girls you sponsor, but your own life as well.
